I am excited to say that my participation in the Emerging Leaders program along with my participation in my state library association has allowed me to help push forward and solidify the Arkansas Library Association's future sponsorship of Emerging Leader participants. The Arkansas Library Association will start sponsoring an Emerging Leader participant with the 2012 Emerging Leader Class.
Since having finished my term as an Emerging Leader, I have taken on three virtual committee/task-force roles within ALA. I also presented a program on the Emerging Leaders program at the Arkansas Library Association Centennial conference in September 2011.This program was well attended and included great questions and comments from the audience. I will also be providing a follow up article for the Arkansas Library Journal (I have previously published an article on the Emerging Leaders program in the Arkansas Library Journal, but this will be a follow up article that focuses on my conference program and my Emerging Leaders project, Deadlines ALA."
