Greetings from the NMRT Orientation Committee!
Is this your first conference? Are you looking to meet more librarians? Do you have questions about ALA, your professional journey, or the exhibit hall? This is the place for you!
Join us this year at ALA Midwinter on Saturday, Jan. 25 from 8:30 to 10 AM in Room 118-ABC in the Philadelphia Convention Center for a fun time including a networking event to meet fellow librarians along with an amazing panel. We have worked hard to put together a fun and interactive orientation session that will help you get your bearings: to the New Members Round Table (NMRT), to ALA, the conference/exhibits, and to Philadelphia.
Our panel guests include Jennifer Wilhelm, Vice-President of NMRT; Tracey J. Hunter Hayes, Co-Chair of BCALA National Conference for African American Librarians; Kelly McElroy, Vice-Chair Librarian on the Exhibits Round Table Board; and Jennifer Chang, Chief, Central Public Services Division of the Free Library of Philadelphia.
The sooner you know what the NMRT has to offer, the sooner it can be a resource for navigating the first years of your career as an information professional.
We hope to see you in Philadelphia!
