Call for Mentors and Mentees: LLAMA Mentoring Program (Deadline 2/8/19)

(via the American Library Association)

The LLAMA Mentoring Committee is recruiting for both mentors and mentees for our July 2019 – June 2020 year. The LLAMA Mentoring Program, http://www.ala.org/llama/llama-mentoring-program,  pairs librarians who are currently in leadership positions with librarians who are interested in becoming leaders.

Mentor application: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2019mentors

Mentee application: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2019mentees

For mentors, it is a chance to pass on your experience and knowledge by working one-on-one with an enthusiastic colleague who is ready to learn and benefit from your experience.

For mentees, it is a great opportunity to learn from an accomplished leader how to:

Explore your leadership potential;
Demonstrate leadership in your current position;
Acquire the skills, attitudes, and relationships that you will need to move into leadership roles.

Participants must be ALA and LLAMA members at the start of the program, and must either attend the Mentor/Mentee orientation at ALA Annual or be able to participate in a virtual orientation at a time to be determined.

The deadline to apply to become a mentor or a mentee is February 8, 2019.

For more information about the LLAMA Mentoring program, contact Mentoring Committee co-chairs Mary Moser at Mary.Moser@umb.edu or Richard Guajardo at guajardo@uh.edu.
