Dear CALA Members:
I am pleased to announce that CALA will once again sponsor two eligible members to participate in the 2012 class of ALA Emerging Leaders program. The sponsorship will provide $1,000 to each selected candidate - $500 to attend the program during next year's ALA Midwinter Meeting in Dallas, TX and $500 for the Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA.
Please apply for the 2012 Emerging Leaders program online at http://www.ala.org/cfapps/emergingleaders/index.cfm. You must be a current CALA member to apply for CALA sponsorship, and just need to choose "Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA)" from the list of sponsoring organizations. For more information about the program and selection criteria, please see http://www.ala.org/ala/educationcareers/leadership/emergingleaders/index.cfm.
Please don't miss the application deadline which is August 1, 2011.
Thank you for your attention,
CALA President 2011-2012
