If you are a library worker with fewer than five years of experience working at a professional or paraprofessional level in a library, you could be part of the 2018 class of ALA Emerging Leaders! The Idaho Library Association is sponsoring one ILA member to participate in this prestigious program!

The ALA EL program is a leadership development program which enables newer library workers 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 participants on the fast track to ALA committee volunteerism as well as other professional library-related organizations.

You will receive $500 to attend the Midwinter Conference in Denver, CO: February 9-13, 2018 and $500 to attend the Annual Conference in New Orleans, LA: June 21-26, 2018. 

Don't delay, the deadline to apply is August 31, 2017.

Just select the Idaho Library Association as a sponsor on your application: http://www.ala.org/cfapps/emergingleaders/index.cfm
