The Conference Mentoring Program is open to all ALA members and is  designed to connect a first time conference attendee with a ‘seasoned  professional’ who can help them navigate the ALA Annual Conference. If you are on your way to becoming a librarian, or are new to the  profession, this program is for you!

The application deadline is May 15, 2010 for first consideration.

Applicants will be matched with a Conference Mentor in June and  communicate via email or telephone prior to the conference and then  meet during the conference.

Please note that this mentoring program is not structured to provide career guidance, it is focused on issues related to the ALA Annual Conference.  NMRT also offers a Career Mentoring program that will begin taking applications at the end of the summer.  Please watch for an announcement regarding Career Mentoring later this year.
