New WeLead Class to be Selected Soon; Apply by January 31

WLA seeks a new class of "WeLead"ers (Wisconsin Emerging Librarians Exploring and Developing) to receive fabulous benefits while honing leadership skills and giving back to the association. The initiative, begun in 2005, is accepting application for three to five protégés. The protégés receive a one-year WLA membership, stipends to attend the WLA annual conference for three years, a stipend to attend one additional conference (WAAL, WAPL, WEMTA or SSS) during the three-year initiative, an appointment to a WLA committee, special leadership programming opportunities, and they are paired with a current leader within WLA to serve as their mentor. Mentors receive up to $125 per year to defray costs of attending the WLA Conference with their protégés.

WLA is supporting the protégés through generous contributions from WAAL, WAPL, Embury, Ltd. and the WLA Foundation. A sincere and hearty thank you to the WeLead contributors!

For more information on the program, as well the application form (for both protégés and mentors), please visit The deadline for applications is January 31, 2010.
