    Hello Everyone - our Section has the opportunity to sponsor a participant in the ALA Emerging Leaders Program. If we choose to do so, we must commit $1000 from our FY2018 basic services fund to sponsor the person.


    The fund would contribute $500 for attendance at both the ALA Midwinter and Annual conferences.


    You can find out more about the Emerging Leaders program here - http://www.ala.org/educationcareers/leadership/emergingleaders.


    Please respond by EOB on Thursday, August 10th, if you are in favor of providing sponsorship for an Emerging Leader.


    Thank You,


    Jackie

    Hi Jackie,

    I wish I knew the balance in the fund better, but even without knowing that, I would say I am in favour of this.

    I'm in favor of sponsoring a participant in the ALA Emerging Leaders Program. I'm assuming we will sponsor a community college librarian?

    Hi Sandy - we can sponsor a librarian or a paraprofessional. According to the website there is a selection committee however, I suspect as sponsors, we could state our preference to support a CC librarian.

    Thanks.

    Hi Peter - based on our past year's expenses, I am thinking that we should look for a co-sponsoring opportunity.

    I wanted to first get the consensus of the group before we looked at that option.

    When CJCLS sponsored an Emerging Leader several years ago, I think we stated our preference to be a community college librarian, but I don't think we can guarantee it, since it depends on who applies and who is chosen from the applicant pool.  I think co-sponsorship is a good idea, it doesn't commit so much of the budget in one chunk.

    I agree with Peter and Jackie that we should support, but that we should cosponsor and request a Community College person.

    I endorse that we should co-sponsor an emerging leader, and request a community college librarian as our recipient.
