Call for Learning Buddies (to Be Paired with Experienced Buddies) at ALA Midwinter 2020 — Deadline Dec. 16

(via the LLAMA New Professionals Community of Practice Buddy Program)

Are you a new Midwinter ALA attendee and would like tips on how to get the most out of your conference experience?

The LLAMA New Professionals Community of Practice Buddy Program is here to pair Learning Buddies with Experienced Buddies in order to get the most out of your conference experience and learn about LLAMA (the Library Leadership and Management Association) in the process.

Learning/New means whatever it means to you; you can be starting a new job or organization, trying out a different area of librarianship, or just brand new to it all!

Your commitment is to meet at least once with your Buddy at the Midwinter ALA conference, and we’ll send you information about your experienced buddy and get you in touch before the conference.

Requests for participation will be anonymized for potential Experienced Buddies to choose the person they feel they’d best be able to guide.

If you are interested in being a Learning Buddy, fill out this form:


Please sign up today!  Requests to participate as a Learning Buddy are due Monday, December 16.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of the LLAMA New Professional Buddy Program Committee: npsbuddy@gmail.com.
