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!
