Four iSchool alumni have been selected by the American Library Association (ALA) to participate in its 2019 class of Emerging Leaders.
Regina Carter (MS '14), Suzanne Clerkin (MS '18), Catherine Manci (MS '16), and Theodore Quiballo (MS '17) are included in this year's class of fifty individuals from across the country. This leadership development initiative provides opportunities for newer library professionals to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, observe ALA structure, and serve the profession in a leadership capacity.
The Emerging Leaders program will launch with events at the 2019 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Seattle, which will be followed by six months of online learning and networking activities. At the end of the program, participants will display the results of their project planning work in a poster session at the 2019 ALA Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.
