Have you ever felt overwhelmed by ALA’s size? Are you confused by the many ALA Divisions and their functions? Join us for the 2017 NMRT President’s Program, Building Bridges in ALA, an ALA Pre-Conference Workshop hosted by Kate Kosturski, on Friday, June 23, 2017 from 9am to 12pm. NMRT will have a panel of transitioning ALA presidents and presidents-elect on hand to help answer your questions about ALA’s organization and the opportunities available to you for career advancement.
In this interactive pre-conference event, participants will explore the challenges of navigating through the larger ALA organization by listening to a panel discussion composed of Vicki L. Sipe, Mary Beth Thompson, Ann Campion Riley, Jeanette P. Smithee, Andromeda Yelton, John Spears, Pixey A. Mosley, Felton Thomas, Jr., Pam Sandlain Smith, Chris LeBeau, and Susan J. Schmidt. Ask questions and network with the panelists while enjoying light refreshments. The cost of participating in the workshop is $20 for NMRT members; $22 for non-NMRT but ALA members; $25 for non-ALA; and $15 for students.
