invitation to apply for LLAMA mentoring program

Dear ALA Members:

The LLAMA Mentoring Committee has begun recruiting mentors and mentees for our July 2014-June 2015 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 mentee is January 30, 2014. To apply, go to:

Mentee:: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8M6PS2R

For more information on the program, contact Debbie Tenofsky at tenofsdg@uc.edu

Thank you- Brook Minner, Joyce Wright, and Melissa Laning, LLAMA Mentoring Committee members.
