ALA Conference and Career Mentoring

Are you going to the ALA conference in D.C. this year?  If so, there are 4 more days to sign up for the Conference Mentoring program.  Applications received after May 6th “will be accepted with the understanding that mentor/mentee matches will be made based on the availability of a mentor or mentee.”

If you can’t make it to our nation’s capital during the week of June 21st – 27th, don’t fret!  Check out ALA’s Career Mentoring, which is “a year-round program to connect a newer librarian with a seasoned librarian for a mentoring relationship relating to career development in librarianship.”

These programs are both sponsored by the New Member’s Round Table (NMRT), which is a natural starting place for students and newly-minted professionals!

  1. The Library School Student Reception sponsored by The New Members Round Table (NMRT) is a great place to meet fellow library school students and members of the New Members Round Table. There are so many opportunities to become involved with ALA in the vast array of committees, subcommittees, associations, and round tables. Stop by the NMRT Student Reception to find out about these opportunities and get answers to your questions about ALA.

    This year’s reception will be an ALA Café with snacks and representatives from many groups within ALA. At the reception SASCO will award the Student Chapter of the Year Award (SCOTYA). Join us on Sunday, June 24 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt in the Lafayette Park room.
