Student and Student Chapter Outreach Committee

The Student and Student Chapter Outreach Committee is charged with the task of developing and maintaining a network of individuals able to promote ALA and NMRT, to work with other NMRT and ALA recruitment efforts, to help keep student members informed of various NMRT activities, awards and scholarships, and to review/evaluate NMRT's student recruitment efforts. For more information on student chapters, please visit ALA’s Student Chapter Directory.

Speakers' Pool

Let us connect you! SASCO provides LIS students with the opportunity to have active NMRT and ALA members speak (virtually or in-person) about involvement in the Association and professional development topics. This is a wonderful opportunity for ALA's best and brightest to be ambassadors to the next generation of library leaders and to keep our professional organization viable. Any questions about the SASCO Speakers' Pool should be directed to the current chair (listed below).
