For those of you going to New Orleans, the New Members Round Table (NMRT) Mentoring Committee is once again seeking participants for their Conference Mentoring Program at the ALA Annual Conference in June!
The Conference Mentoring Program is a great way to network with individuals who are new to the profession. It is open to all ALA members and is designed to connect a first time conference attendee with a 'Seasoned Professional' who can help them navigate the ALA Annual Conference.
Do you remember being overwhelmed at your first ALA Conference?
Do you consider yourself a Conference Pro now?
This is your opportunity to help a new professional learn the ropes....
Sign up today to be a Conference Mentor!
Is this your first ALA conference? Sign up to have someone help you get the most out of it!
What better way to give back to the profession, build leadership skills, and reminisce on those early days than to be a mentor - plus it looks great on a resume or a tenure dossier!
Interested in participating? Please complete an online application form at www.ala.org/ala/nmrt/comm/conferenceMentorApp.htm.
Additional information about the Conference Mentoring Program is also available on the NMRT web site at www.ala.org/NMRT. The application deadline is May 5th, 2006.
If you have questions, please contact the NMRT Mentoring Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to share this invitation with your colleagues.
