The American Library Association (ALA) Emerging Leaders
Group G is soliciting real stories of how the Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR) has impacted job seekers—new graduates and transitioning career seekers alike—over the past 35 years.

If you found the perfect job thorough the ALA Placement Center, located the perfect candidate at a conference or successfully revamped your resume with the resume review service in the Placement Center, the group wants to hear about it. No story is too small, no story too large. Stories can be submitted two ways:

  1. Email—
  2. YouTube— tag videos with “

The group will present its final project at the Emerging Leaders poster session, from 3 – 5 p.m.
Friday, July 10 in McCormick Place West, Room W-185.

The American Library Association (ALA) Emerging Leaders program began in 2007 as one of then-president,
Leslie Burger's six initiatives. The Emerging Leaders program enables newer librarians from across the country to participate in problem-solving work groups; network with peers; gain an inside look into ALA structure; and have an opportunity to serve the profession in a leadership capacity. It puts them on the fast track to ALA and professional leadership.

Emerging Leaders 2009 Team G includes Alex Tyle-Annen, Cynthia Dudenhoffer, Miranda Rodriguez and Tracy Stout.
