ALA Emerging Leaders
The list of participants for the ALA Emerging Leaders program is now available. I'm psyched to see that two of my all time favorite library folks, Sarah Steiner from Georgia State and Michelle Boule of the University of Houston, are on the list. I've worked with Sarah on a couple of presentations and had the opportunity to meet Michelle at a couple of conferences this year. They are both super bright, articulate, energetic folks (and great friends) who will have a lot to offer the program. If they're indicative of the caliber of participants, it should be an amazing experience for everyone.
There are also a few more Georgia librarians on the list who I haven't had the pleasure to meet, or have just met briefly: Justin Otto from Emory, Deborah Raftus from UGA, Bonnie Tijerina from Georgia Tech, and Shaundra Walker from Georgia College and State University. Nice to see so many great local folks involved. If any of you have blogs, let me know!
