Chapter Opportunity: Get involved with ARLIS/NA-Southeast!

The Southeast Chapter of ARLIS/NA will host the annual conference in New Orleans February 5-9, 2017, so opportunities to get involved are already developing and will continue to develop in the coming months.

The ARLIS/NA-SE Chapter serves professionals (and students!) who reside in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. If you live in any of these places, check out the chapter website and see how you can get involved. Here are some current opportunities to highlight:

  • The chapter is hosting its own annual conference November 16-18 in Sarasota, FL, at the Center for Asian Art at the Ringling Museum of Art. More information can be found on the conference website.
  • Chapter Vice-President Kimberly Windham encourages ARLIS/NA-SE members who are located in Florida to apply to serve on the Program Planning Committee for the Sarasota conference. Serving on this committee is a great chance to network and build valuable skills! Interested members may submit a letter of interest to her at kimberly(dot)windham(at)famu(dot)edu
  • The Southeast Chapter also continually runs an informal mentoring program for chapter members. Whether you are a student or new professional, mentoring programs can be very helpful as you get started in your career. More information can be found here and the program comes highly recommended!

Still time to sign up for the Conference Networking Program!

If you are attending your first or second ARLIS/NA conference you probably have questions about making the most of the conference or developing your professional network. The Conference Networking Program provides conference newbies with a more experienced ARLIS/NA member to show you the ropes and introduce you to new colleagues.

For ARLIS/NA veterans, this is a fine opportunity to make a significant impact in your profession at a personal level. Conference veterans are expected to contact their newbie prior to the conference, meet with them once arriving at the conference, discuss the structure and workings of the organization, give conference-attending tips, and introduce new members to others at any events to help that person build his or her own network within the organization. The estimated time commitment is a couple hours, spread over the course of the conference.

Those requesting Conference Networking partners will be matched based on the information drawn from the registration form by coordinators from the Professional Development Committee. Both veterans and newcomers will be notified before the conference.

Prerequisites to be a veteran are to have attended one or more recent ARLIS conference and be reasonably well acquainted with the organization. The only prerequisite for newcomers is to be a first or second time conference attendee.

This is a fun and collegial program that has had much success and positive feedback. Both partners have found the program greatly enhances their conference experience.

Please submit the registration form by April 15: http://goo.gl/2im6U

If you have any questions, please contact Maggie Portis, mportis@pratt.edu.
