Subject: [alacro-l] Accepting applications for the 2016 class of Emerging
To: "alacro-l at lists.ala.org" <alacro-l at lists.ala.org>

 The American Library Association (ALA) is now accepting applications for
the 2016 class of Emerging Leaders.  Details on the program criteria as
well as a link to the application can be found on the Emerging Leaders Web
page <http://www.ala.org/educationcareers/leadership/emergingleaders/>.

The deadline to apply is Aug. 1, 2015.

The program is designed to enable library workers to get on the fast track
to ALA and professional leadership.  Participants are given the opportunity
to work on a variety of projects, network with peers and gain an
understanding of the ALA structure and wide range of activities.

Individuals who are considering applying to the program should be a new
library professional with fewer than five years of experience working at a
professional or paraprofessional level in a library.  They should also be
able to attend both the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Boston (Jan. 8 – 12, 2016)
and the ALA Annual Conference in Orlando (June 23 – 28, 2016).  Additional
criteria can be found on the Emerging Leaders’ Web page

An ALA division, round table, ethnic affiliate, state chapter or school
library media affiliate will sponsor nearly all of the selected
applicants.  Each sponsor will contribute $1,000 toward expenses of
attending the ALA Midwinter Meeting and Annual Conference ($500 for each
conference).  Sponsorship is not required for participation in the program.

A list of sponsoring units is included as part of the online application.
Applicants can indicate on the application which groups they want to
consider them for sponsorship.  Applicants may also check with various
state associations and/or state chapters to find out if they are
participating and how to apply for their sponsorship.

No more than one person from any institution will be selected for
participation in the program in any given year.

For more information, visit the Emerging Leaders Web page
<http://www.ala.org/educationcareers/leadership/emergingleaders/> or
contact the program manager at emergingleaders at ala.org.
