Dear CALA Members:
I am pleased to announce that CALA will once again sponsor two eligible members to participate in the 2013 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 Seattle, Washington and $500 for the Annual Conference in Chicago, IL.
Please apply for the 2013 Emerging Leaders program online at http://www.ala.org/educationcareers/leadership/emergingleaders. You must be a current CALA member to apply for this CALA sponsorship, and you 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 3, 2012.
Thank you for your attention,
Esther Lee, CALA President, 2012-2013
