The Professional Development Committee of ARLIS/NA is at it again – the year-long mentoring program is available for all members. Read below for a description of the mandatory conference workshop which kicks off the program, and then Sign Up Here!
The ARLIS/NA year-long Mentoring Program will commence with a free workshop at the Atlanta conference on Thursday, April 26, 1-5 p.m. The workshop, facilitated by V. Heidi Hass and Tony White, will focus on participants in the program and will give guidance on the mentor/mentee relationship throughout the following year.
I was fortunate to participate in last year’s program, and the experience provided a wonderful opportunity to connect with another professional. This year promises to be an invaluable extension of the program.
I would encourage all ARLIS/NA members, no matter your level of experience in the field, to sign up. The committee does a very good job of matching participants to the best of its ability. Remember that you don’t have to have had decades of experience in the field in order to share your insight. The organization grows when all members share their experiences, and mentors can expect to learn equally from their mentees throughout the process.
