Dear Colleagues,

I am writing on behalf of the LLAMA Mentoring Program. As a division of ALA, the Library Leadership and Management Association advances outstanding leadership and management practices in library and information services by encouraging and nurturing individual excellence in current and aspiring library leaders.

The mentoring program pairs librarians with leadership experience with librarians who are interested in becoming leaders.  The program runs from the ALA Annual Convention in June to April 30 of the following year.

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 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.

Your involvement and activity within LLAMA means you would have a lot to offer a newer librarian.  I'm asking you to consider signing up as Mentor.  We received over 60 applications from mentees, but only 30 mentor applications. If you are willing to participate, please sign up using this form:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5WWVLMR<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.surveymonkey.com_r_5WWVLMR&d=BQMFAw&c=8hUWFZcy2Z-Za5rBPlktOQ&r=4bodCdozpnYAas_zf3v4no2fl4PTAdlBsPn94OkSEk8&m=U0y8WJJ_NUYqPyu3GL0RlDK0Ql7gfsd6ll8h1XCksrQ&s=aAy8sZBa1jlN_Qiwpg2fjnygK2OGhe1j1aINgG8axSI&e=>.  Your response by Tuesday, February 16 would be very much appreciated.

If you have any questions you can reply directly to this email.

Thank you for considering this opportunity!
