Description:
From 11-12 pm, there will be a CALA Membership/Poster Session where CALA members will showcase their projects in poster formats. All are welcome to attend. From 12-1 pm, it will be a panel discussion. In 2023, the Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA) will celebrate its 50th anniversary and in 2020, the Asian Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) celebrated its 40th anniversary. Both associations have promoted opportunities to volunteers in leadership opportunities, and have achieved critical milestones for AAPI library workers. This panel discussion will center on the voices of AAPI library leaders and their challenges and opportunities in the profession at large, and how to rethink about expanding new opportunities going forward. Based on an IMLS funded project called, “Path to Leadership,” the discussion will center on the experiences of invited forum participants and how they envision change in the profession in large and its leadership going forward. The session is co-sponsored by the Asian Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA).
