Fast-tracking Your Professional Reputation: Publishing Books and Getting Involved in ALA, presented by Megan Hodge
How can you get published if you haven't yet done empirical research? How do you get your name on the cover as editor of a professional book? How does joining library associations-whether at the state or national level-benefit you? In this presentation, learn about the book proposal process, how to contribute chapters to edited books, and how getting involved in library associations (particularly ALA) can lead to leadership opportunities and job offers.

Megan Hodge is Head, Teaching & Learning at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. She graduated with her MSLS from the University of North Texas in 2010 and has dedicated much of her professional service and scholarship to the professional development of new librarians. She has been elected to several leadership positions in the American Library Association's New Members Round Table, including serving as president in 2014-2015. In 2012, Megan co-founded the New Members Round Table Forum for the Virginia Library Association with Future Academic Librarian's Toolkit contributor Rebecca Miller Waltz, for which she was awarded the Virginia Library Association's Presidential Citation, and served as the forum's first chair. Megan is also a Councilor-at-Large for the American Library Association (ALA); a doctoral student in educational research, assessment, and evaluation; and a 2011 alumna of the ALA Emerging Leaders program.
