nmrt logo  
Welcome to the NMRT Student Reception Committee's webpage! The purpose of the NMRT Student Reception Committee is to plan an event at the Annual Conference to recognize the recipients of the Student Chapter of the Year award and to provide current LIS students with an opportunity to learn about ALA, network, and socialize.

Confused by the vast array of committees, subcommittees, round tables and associations within ALA? The New Member Round Table ( NMRT) can help! Learn what it takes to get involved with ALA.

Committee Charge

The Student Reception Commitee encourages library students to attend the ALA Annual Conference and introduces them to ALA, NMRT, and other divisions and round tables. To welcome those who attend the Annual Conference, the Committee arranges a reception (open to students, NMRT members, the ALA Executive Board, representatives of division/round tables, and library school deans) during the early days of the conference.
