Accepting appointments for photographer services at the ALA 2017 Midwinter Meeting

CHICAGO — An exciting service is now part of the American Library Association’s (ALA) JobLIST Placement and Career Development Center. During the ALA 2017 Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta we will be offering all attendees an opportunity to have a "headshot" photo package created. Photos will be taken in the ALA JobLIST Placement and Career Development Center on Saturday and Sunday, January 21 - 22, 2017, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. Appointments can be made in advance and onsite. Walk-ins also welcomed. For advance appointments, use the online sign-up form.

There is a nominal fee of $20 which can be paid either in advance with a check or money order, or onsite with cash, money order or check only. All advance payments must be received by Friday, January 6, 2017.

To pay in advance, complete the registration form and mail it along with payment made payable to the American Library Association to the following address: ALA/HRDR, c/o Beatrice Calvin, Placement Photo Service, 50 East Huron Street, Chicago, IL 60611.

Any attendee can sign-up for an appointment with ALA's conference photography team to have a professional photo taken and set of digital images created for the attendees' use in job applications, social media and other networking venues. Sign-up now.

This service is provided as part of ALA’s continuing efforts to help members retool their skills, gain insight into career possibilities, and prepare for job searches.
