Call for nominations: MLA Rising Star Program

Cross-posted, please excuse duplications!

Applications are now open for the MLA Rising Star program. For more information follow the link below to the MLA Award site.

The MLA Rising Star program gives members the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge, and personal characteristics needed to become a leader in MLA. The yearly leadership development program matches each Rising Star with a mentor in a curriculum that includes monthly classes, training to develop self-awareness of skills as a leader, and opportunities to gain an intimate view of MLA, from Board meetings to MLA history.  Rising Stars will spend the year working on a group project related to current MLA initiatives.

Nominations are due October 15, 2022. This award is presented annually by MLA. Visit MLANET at for further details, criteria, and the application form.
