GELA – Fall Social

gela-fall-social

The leaves have turned and fallen, the holiday season is fast upon us; these are all good reasons for a drink and good time with library folks.  Join us for another social at the Underground Tap and Grill on November 17th starting at 5pm. This is a casual, “come and go as you can” event and feel free to bring friends, significant others. Non-members need not be shy either!  To keep up to date there is a Facebook Event Page you can join.

For any questions email info@gela.ca Hope to see you there!

Calling all Mentees! It’s time to pick your mentor!

The Greater Edmonton Library Association (GELA) is pleased to once again present the Professional Buddies Mentorship Program! We hope to link experienced professionals with students, new graduates, and other community members with an interest in a career in libraries. We seek to provide an opportunity to share advice, review CVs, and ask questions!

At the link below you will be able to pick a mentor based on their brief anonymous bio. Act fast as spaces are limited!

Participants are also encouraged to arrange their own informal meet-ups, or have conversations remotely. The mentorship program is intended to be open and casual.

This year, we’re doing the matches a little differently: we’re asking potential mentors to provide short professional profiles. Then, we’ll anonymize the profiles and allow prospective mentees to select their own mentor match on a first-come first-choice basis. We welcome mentors of all experience levels, from early-career to retired information professionals.
