Attendees of the American Library Association’s (ALA) 2022 Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. are invited to meet the 2022 class of Emerging Leaders (EL) at a celebratory poster session Friday, June 24, 2022, 2:30 p.m.  – 3:30 p.m., at the Renaissance D.C. Hotel - Potomac Ballroom Salon 2. This will be the first time in several years that an EL class will showcase their final projects at an in-person event. All are welcomed and encouraged to attend.

The poster session will be the culminating event for this class of Emerging Leaders. Since the ALA 2022 LibLearnX Meeting, teams have been working virtually on projects related to ALA or a professional concern. 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 65% of participants were sponsored by an ALA division, round table, chapter, or an affiliate organization.

Please join us on Friday, June 24th, during the ALA 2022 Annual Conference & Exhibition to meet, congratulate and encourage this amazing class of Emerging Leaders.

The Emerging Leaders program is managed by the ALA Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR).
