Meet the 2024 Class of Emerging Leaders at a Poster Session during ALA Annual Conference

The Emerging Leaders’ program facilitators are excited and pleased to invite attendees of the American Library Association’s (ALA) 2024 Annual Conference to meet the 2024 class of Emerging Leaders (EL) at a celebratory poster session Friday, June 28, 2024, 2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m., in the Marriott Marquis (Conference Headquarters Hotel), Pacific Ballroom - Section 18.

The poster session will be the culminating event for this class of Emerging Leaders. Since the ALA 2024 LibLearnX Meeting in January, teams have been working virtually on professional projects related to ALA or one of the affiliate organizations. These teams have been supported by ALA staff and member guides from the profession. The poster session will allow each group to highlight its creative and innovative solutions for their projects.

Participants in this class of ELs come from across the United States and Canada and represent a variety of types of libraries. Approximately 68% of participants were sponsored by an ALA division, round table, chapter, or an affiliate organization.

Please join us on Friday, June 28th, during the ALA 2024 Annual Conference & Exhibition in San Diego to meet, congratulate and encourage this amazing class of Emerging Leaders.
