ALA-LLAMA Call for Mentors and Mentees

The LLAMA Mentoring Committee has begun recruiting for both mentors and mentees for our July 2015-June 2016 year. The mentoring program pairs librarians who are currently in leadership positions with librarians who are interested in becoming leaders.
For mentors, it is a chance to pass on your experience and knowledge by working one-on-one with an enthusiastic  colleague who is ready to learn and benefit  from your experience.
For mentees, it is a great opportunity to learn from an accomplished leader how to:
• explore your leadership potential
• demonstrate leadership in your current position
• acquire the skills, attitudes and relationships that you will need to move into leadership roles.
Participants must be ALA and LLAMA members as of the start of the program, and must either attend the Mentor/Mentee orientation at ALA Annual or be able to participate in a virtual orientation at a time to be determined.
The deadline to apply to become a mentor or a mentee is February 20th, 2015.
