Dear colleagues,


The ALA New Members Round Table (NMRT) seeks a volunteer to serve as
liaison between NMRT and the Association for Library and Information
Science Education (ALISE).



Being an ALA-NMRT Liaison* *is a fantastic opportunity for a library
science student or a new librarian to be more involved in the library
profession. NMRT liaisons play a key role in increasing awareness of
information and ideas of mutual interest to NMRT and liaison unit members
with a minimal time commitment.



This liaison appointment will be for a one-year term commencing immediately
and concluding following the ALA Annual Conference in June 2013. *Conference
attendance is not required!*



Liaison responsibilities are listed below. NMRT-L and unit communication
tools (ALA Connect, blogs, listservs, and wikis) as well as conference
attendance are appropriate ways to carry out these responsibilities:

   - Join appropriate listservs, including NMRT-L. Share information about
   ALISE announcements, programs and other information with NMRT.


   - Keep ALISE informed of NMRT activities that may be of interest to
   ALISE members, such as the programs sponsored by the NMRT Mentoring
   Committee, and the Student and Student Chapter Outreach Committee.


   -  Invite ALISE representatives to attend NMRT events at the ALA Annual
   Conference.


   -  Report on ALISE policies, discussions, and actions that are relevant
   to NMRT.


   -  Identify and alert NMRT of ALISE programs which NMRT may wish to
   co-sponsor.

If you are interested in getting involved, please fill out the volunteer
