Sign up for Colleague Connection
Sign up for Colleague Connection by May 1st! Meet people and make a difference!
Colleague Connection is the Medical Library Association’s mentoring program that pairs newer members or first-time meeting attendees with returning, experienced members at the Annual Meeting. Most pairs will be assigned by May 8, so you have plenty of time to contact your mentor/mentee in advance and start making a connection!
Don’t miss this opportunity! Mentees and Mentors may register here:
The program matches new attendees to the association and help them get the most out of the meeting. Contacts made through Colleague Connection can lead to ongoing friendships and expand professional contacts.
If you are a new member or first time conference attendee, pair up with an experienced colleague at the meeting in Seattle! Colleague Connection provides an opportunity to learn more about the meeting, maximize your time, meet new colleagues, build professional networks, and learn about the profession.
As mentors, returning members also benefit from Colleague Connection — whether you have decades of experience or only a few years. Mentoring a colleague during the conference will expand your professional network and expose you to new perspectives. Most importantly, you have the opportunity to help someone navigate a new organization and profession.
Those who by Monday, May 1st will be assigned a mentor or mentee before the meeting. Once assigned, each pair will be responsible for arranging times to meet at MLA’17 Dream Dare Do!
