Never attended an ARLIS/NA annual conference before? Attended once but would like to get more out of it?
If so, consider taking part in the Conference Networking Program to get the most of your conference experience. For newcomers, it’s a fast way to meet people and learn about the profession.
Seasoned conference attendee?
Volunteer to show first or second time attendees the ropes by sharing your experiences with sessions, committee meetings, SIGS, the vendor hall and much, much more! For ARLIS/NA veterans, this is a wonderful opportunity to meet and help welcome new colleagues into the profession.
Networkers will be matched with mentors by the Program Coordinator based on information supplied by you in the registration form such as subject area interest and library type. You will both be informed of your match before the conference so that contact and arrangements to meet can be made prior to the conference.
Mentors should make sure you both meet within the first or second day at the conference, discuss the structure and workings of the Society, share conference-attending tips, and introduce networkers to colleagues whenever possible throughout the conference. Most who take part in this program find it a rewarding experience that builds new and lasting friendships.
Interested? Please fill out and submit this form by April 10, 2010.
Please direct questions about the program to Sarah Falls. Please note that this is not the year-long mentoring program, and will only cover the annual conference.
