NMRT President’s Program 2017

“Building Bridges in ALA" Friday, June 23 from 9am to 12pm.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by ALA’s size? Are you confused by the many ALA Divisions and their functions? Join us for the 2017 NMRT President’s Program, Building Bridges in ALA, an ALA Pre-Conference Workshop hosted by NMRT President Kate Kosturski. In this interactive pre-conference event, participants will be able to explore the opportunities and challenges of navigating through the larger ALA organization.

The event will be broken into two sections. The first featuring a panel of transitioning ALA presidents and presidents-elect to help answer your questions about ALA’s organization and the opportunities available to you for career advancement. Confirmed guest for our panel discussion, include: Vicki L. Sipe, Mary Beth Thompson, Ann Campion Riley, Jeanette P. Smithee, Andromeda Yelton, John Spears, Pixey A. Mosley, Felton Thomas, Jr., Pam Sandlain Smith, Chris LeBeau, and Susan J. Schmidt. Participants will also have an opportunity to participate in Q&A with our panelists. After a light food service, the second half of the session will be an interactive networking event for attendees with panelists in a “speed dating” format.

The cost of participating in the workshop is $20 for NMRT members; $22 for non-NMRT but ALA members; $25 for non-ALA; and $15 for students.
