Please remember that you can still sign-up to participate in the Denver Conference Mentor Program! More information about the program as well as the registration form can be found by clicking on the following link:http://arlisna-mw.lib.byu.edu/denver2008/confmentor_form.htm

**Please note that the Denver Conference Mentor Program is separate from the year-long ARLIS/NA Mentoring Program and workshop.

Whether you are a seasoned ARLIS/Na conference veteran of a first (or second) timer, you have the opportunity to participate in the Denver conference Mentor Program. If you are attending your first conference and are just beginning to develop your ARLIS network, the Mentor Program provides you with an experienced ARLIS/NA member to show you the ropes and introduce you to new colleagues. For ARLIS/NA veterans, this is a fine opportunity to make a significant impact in the Society on a personal level.

Those requesting mentors will be matched with those volunteering to serve as mentors by the Program Coordinator, based on information drawn from the application form. Both mentors and their newcomers will be notified before the conference.

Mentors are expected to contact their mentees prior to the conference, meet with their mentee on the first or second day at the conference, discuss the structure and workings of the society, give conference-attending tips, and introduce their mentee to new colleagues whenever possible during the conference.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Alba Fernández-Keys
Mentor Program Coordinator
