Applications are now open for the 2024 Emerging Leaders program, which puts participants on the fast track to volunteering within ALA and other professional library-related organizations. Core is sponsoring three ELs, and the deadline to apply is September 9, 2023.
Each of Core’s Emerging Leaders will receive $1,000 ($500 for each conference) toward expenses to attend ALA LibLearnX (in Baltimore, MD, January 19-22, 2024) and the ALA Annual Conference (in San Diego, CA, June 27 – July 2, 2024).
The Emerging Leaders program enables newer library workers from across the country and Canada to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into ALA structure, and have an opportunity to serve the profession in a leadership capacity.
Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures is the national association that advances the profession of librarians and information providers in central roles of buildings & operations, leadership & management, metadata & collections, and technology. Applicants involved in these areas are encouraged to select Core as their sponsoring unit on their application.
