The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) Mentoring Committee has begun recruiting mentors and mentees for our July 2013-June 2014 year. Â The mentoring program pairs librarians who are currently in leadership positions with librarians who are interested in becoming leaders.
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 need to move into leadership roles.
Participants must be LLAMA members as of 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 mentee is December 21, 2012. To apply, go to:
