The Committee had a very successful year.

This year the Mentorship & Leadership Development Committee focused on cultivating mentorship through informal brown-bag gatherings, providing support for our members by reviewing program and article submissions (thank you Heidi and Debbie), and welcoming new members at CALL Business Meetings (thank you Mandy and Sally).
We encouraged new members to apply for grants and attend AALL’s CONELL, with two new members attending with grants. We encourage everyone to visit the MLDC calendar to find upcoming conferences and publishing opportunities, which is designed give members grant ideas (thank you Lyo and Sarah for all of your hard work on this).
