ALA Emerging Leaders Application Now Available!

6 Jul 2021 7:34 AM | Ronald Russ (Administrator)

The American Library Association (ALA) is now accepting applications for the 2022 class of Emerging Leaders (EL). Details on the program criteria as well as a link to the application can be found on the Emerging Leaders web page.

The deadline to apply is August 30, 2021. Apply now.

The ALA EL program is a leadership development program which enables newer library workers from across the country to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into ALA structure, and have an opportunity to serve the profession in a leadership capacity. It puts participants on the fast track to ALA committee volunteerism as well as other professional library-related organizations.

The Arkansas Library Association sponsors one ALA Emerging Leaders applicant each year. All applications from Arkansas librarians will automatically be forwarded to ArLA to be considered for this $2,000 sponsorship. For more information, please contact

For additional details, visit the Emerging Leaders web page or contact the EL project manager at
