ARLIS/NA mentoring programs are managed by the Professional Development Committee’s Mentoring Subcommittee.

ARLIS/NA Year-Long Mentoring Program

Now in its 11th year, this program matches ARLIS/NA members in a year-long formal mentoring relationship. Participation in a mandatory workshop at the annual conference gives mentors and mentees the tools necessary to create and maintain a successful relationship. Mentoring pairs communicate monthly by phone or Skype. The theme of the 2016-17 Year-Long Mentoring Program is Leadership.

ARLIS/NA Conference Networking Program

The Conference Networking Program matches first-time conference attendees with experienced ARLIS/NA members, to help newcomers get the most out of the conference. For first time attendees, this is a great way to learn about ARLIS/NA and meet new colleagues. For ARLIS/NA veterans, it is an opportunity to make a significant impact on the Society at a personal level. Veterans are expected to contact newcomers prior to the conference, meet with them the first or second day at the conference, discuss the structure and workings of the Society, give conference-attending tips, and introduce them to new colleagues and exhibitors whenever possible during the conference. This networking program spans the duration of the conference.

ARLIS/NA Chapter Mentoring Program

Modeled after the Year-Long Mentoring Program and implemented at the Chapter level, the Chapter Mentoring Program provides a formal mentoring structure for ARLIS/NA members at any point in their careers. The Mentoring Subcommittee provides materials and support to the Chapter Mentoring Liaisons who run the Chapter mentoring programs.
