Happy spring, people!
How many of you have applied for CAL Leadership Institute? If you wanted to, but haven't, you've still got time. The deadline has been pushed back to April 13th. At the very least, you'll meet some amazing people and find some wonderful mentors. At the most, you'll get a ton out of it, perhaps even a job?

Speaking of jobs, you've been watching them roll out on JobLine, yes? It's great to see so many positions becoming available again!

CAL Leadership Institute is accepting applications! I (Erica) just graduated from CALLI in October and I have to say it was the perfect counterpart to my Masters Program. I was able to research a lot of the more hands-on, how-to-do-it type of things I'd wanted to know about in school but hadn't had the opportunity to explore. There were some amazing people in my cohort, some who had been in libraries for thousands of years and some who had just begun their library career. We met everyone in the state who is anyone and it was an overall wonderful experience.
You don't have to be employed in an actual library or have an MLIS to apply but you DO have to be involved with libraries (consultant, student, what have you) and you HAVE to be a member of CAL.
There is a monetary cost, but it's spread out over the year. It mostly involves transportation, meals, and CALCON expenses.
Now that you know all that, I recommend you apply! Here's the notice you'll see on libnet and such places:

Looking for ways to grow your leadership skills? Look no further than the CAL Leadership Institute (CALLI).

The CAL Leadership Institute develops leaders within CAL and the Colorado Library Community. During the year-long Institute participants engage in personal discovery and growth through a series of workshops, online discussions, relationships with peers, and mentors. A recent graduate said:

"My experience in CALLI was a catalyst for professional growth. The readings, activities, and discussions had a dramatic effect on my day-to-day work as a library team member. The leadership training played a big role in my career opportunities. Most memorable are the friendships and collegial connections I made statewide. CALLI made me a better, and happier, librarian."

The Institute begins October 2012, in connection with the CAL Conference. Applications are due April 1.

For more information and to apply please visit the CAL website http://www.cal-webs.org/ or contact Elizabeth Kelsen Huber, Chair of the CAL Leadership Development Committee, ehuber@dclibraries.org

I need some help from you guys. I'm trying to find the person/e-mail address in charge of e-mailing information out to all LIS students at:
Emporia/Denver (you Emporia students should know who that is, right?)
San Jose State (I'm worried Sandy Hirsh is going to kill me if I keep going through her)
Drexel

Let me know what you know and many thanks in advance.
-Erica

In case you haven't seen this elsewhere:

Dear ALA Members:

The LLAMA Mentoring Committee has begun recruiting mentors and mentees for our July 2012-June 2013 year. The mentoring program pairs librarians who are currently in leadership positions with librarians who are interested in becoming leaders.
For mentors, it is a chance to pass on your experience and knowledge by working one-on-one with an enthusiastic colleague who is ready to learn and benefit from your experience.
For mentees, it is a great opportunity to learn from an accomplished leader how to:
• explore your leadership potential
• demonstrate leadership in your current position
• acquire the skills, attitudes and relationships that you will need to move into leadership roles.

Participants must be ALA and LLAMA members as of the start of the program, and must either attend the Mentor/Mentee orientation at ALA Annual or be able to participate in a virtual orientation at a time to be determined.

The deadline to apply to become a mentor or mentee is December 16, 2011. To apply, go to
Mentor: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6D66DQL
Mentee: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6YZB339

For more information on the program, contact Holly Cole Okuhara at holly.okuhara@gmail.com

Thank you - Bede Mitchell and Melissa Laning, LLAMA Mentoring Committee members
LLAMA Mentoring Program Mentor Application. Exit this application. Program Requirements. In order to participate in the LLAMA Mentoring Program, you must be able to answer yes to the following three q...
