    IFRT Emerging Leader Project Feedback

    Hello IFRT Members!

    In addition to sponsoring an Emerging Leader participant, IFRT will be submitting a project proposal for the class of 2022. IFRT has two strong candidates for a Emerging Leader Project Proposal and we'd love to get your input on which idea is submitted. We ask that you take just a few minutes to provide your feedback.

    This form will provide a detailed overview of the ideas and the deliverables. Regardless of which idea you think is best, any feedback for the emerging leaders team on implementation and usefulness are greatly appreciated. It will help them as they brainstorm their chosen project. Then the final question asks you to choose which proposal you believe is strongest in supporting the mission of the round table. 

    Thank you in advance for your time and support, and for helping us submit a really strong Emerging Leader project proposal!

    So far, 15 response have been recorded. 

    IFRT has sponsored Emerging Leaders for the last few years. The program puts participants on the fast track to ALA committee volunteerism as well as other professional library-related organizations. Many of the ELs have continued to participate in IFRT after they graduate from the program. Financially participating in the program has been a specific part of IFRT's annual budget planning and strategic development. 

    Please take five minutes to read the two ideas and vote for which idea you think IFRT should pursue for submission. IFRT Emerging Leader Project Feedback Form

    These are both such interesting ideas! Either would be a great project for someone new to the field.
