As a result of a three-year ALA Emerging Leaders project, LLAMA is seeking to form a â€˜New Professionals Sectionâ€™. This new Section would provide a suite of programs and services to help LIS students and new professionals identify and develop skills in leadership and management, and connect them with the vast resources and service opportunities throughout ALA.
According to the LLAMA bylaws, the creation of a new section requires the support of at least 100 ALA members. But even if you arenâ€™t an ALA member and support the formation of this new Section, we want to hear from you!
Please consider supporting the petition and forwarding it to as many people as possible: http://bit.ly/LLAMA-NPS-Petition. No commitment is required on your part by completing the petition which will be open until September 30.
If successful, the petition will be presented for approval this fall, and the first meeting held at the 2014 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia.
Thank you for your support!
