The Mentorship and Leadership Development Committee (MLDC) has been busy! Here is some of the great work already completed by the Committee:
- MDLC launched a new page on the CALL website under Members Information – this page includes upcoming events, the mentorship form, key contacts and more.
- The Professional Development Encouragement subcommittee (Lyonette Louis-Jacques and Sarah Andeen) is currently compiling and completing a database of CALL member publications (and forthcoming publications). Please send any contributions you can to the subcommittee so CALL can recognize your terrific work! You can find more information at the CALL MLDC website.
- The subcommittee has also been busy organizing the upcoming opportunities for CALL members to take advantage of in the new MDLC calendar.
- Don’t forget to apply for a CALL grant.
- A special thanks to my Committee for all of their hard work!
- Any questions, please reach out to the MDLC Chair, Lindsey Carpino firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, please consider becoming a CALL mentor or mentee. You may contact the Committee with any questions or fill out the Mentorship and Networking Interest Form.
