Congratulations to Academic Resident Annie Pho, who will participate in ALA’s Emerging Leaders program for 2014. Pho is one of 50 applicants selected for the program, which is designed to help new professionals develop leadership skills. Participants will be assigned to a team sponsored by a specific ALA division; the teams will then meet at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia and work together virtually. At the culmination of the program, each team will present a poster at the ALA Annual Conference.
Pho says she looks forward to gaining leadership skills, the opportunity to network with other early-career librarians, and the experience of working on projects for ALA. “I’m really excited about this opportunity,” she said, “I feel honored that I was able to participate in this program.”
