ALA Emerging Leaders Open to MLS and non-MLS

I am so happy to see this announcement from the ALA Web site:

For the first time since its establishment, the Emerging Leaders program will accept non-MLS library workers. Library support staff personnel are encouraged to apply to the program and will have an opportunity to be considered for sponsorship through the ALA Library Support Staff Interests Round Table.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2010 ALA Emerging Leaders Program. The deadline to apply is July 31, 2009. You can view the complete announcement here: http://www.ala.org/ala/newspresscenter/news/pressreleases2009/june2009/elapplicationsopen_hrdr.cfm

Way to go ALA!
