NMRT sponsors 2010 Emerging Leader

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:05 pm by nmrtsecretary

NMRT is pleased to sponsor Janel White for the 2010 Emerging Leaders program.

The sponsorship consists of $1000 towards the costs of attending the 2010 Midwinter Meeting in Boston and the 2010 Annual Conference in Washington, DC.

Janel White works at National Public Radio (NPR) in their Broadcast Library.  She catalogs the radio shows that NPR produces and provides audio reference services for the staff.  Janel received her MLS from Drexel University in December 2005.  Since then she has been a member of ALA & NMRT, and has been active on multiple NMRT committees. Janel currently is the 2009-2010 chair of the NMRT Archives Committee, the 2009-2010 chair of the NMRT President’s Program Committee and member of the 2009-2010 Local Arrangements Committee.   Outside of work, Janel sings in a local choir, reads books and plays tennis.

Previous NMRT-sponsored Emerging Leaders are Linda Shippert in 2008, and Alexandra Tyle-Annen in 2009.
