Still Accepting Applications for Emerging Leaders Program – Deadline August 30

The American Library Association (ALA) is still accepting applications for the 2020 class of Emerging Leaders (EL). The deadline to apply is August 30, 2019. Apply now.

The ALA EL program is a leadership development program which enables newer library workers from across the country to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into ALA structure, and have an opportunity to serve the profession in a leadership capacity. It puts participants on the fast track to ALA committee volunteerism as well as other professional library-related organizations.

An ALA division, round table, ethnic affiliate, state chapter or school library media affiliate will sponsor nearly two-thirds of the selected applicants. Each sponsor will contribute a minimum of $1,000 toward expenses of attending the ALA Midwinter Meeting and Annual Conference ($500 for each conference). Sponsorship is not required for participation in the program. A list of sponsoring units is included as part of the online application.

For more information, visit the Emerging Leaders web page or contact the EL project manager at [email protected].

 

The ALA Emerging Leaders program is managed by the ALA Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR).
