King Emerging Leader The American Library Association (ALA) named Discovery Elementary Media Library Specialist Matthew King to the 2019 Class of Emerging Leaders. King is one of fifty selected throughout the United States and will be the sole representative from Missouri. The Missouri Association of School Librarians is proud to be represented in this elite cohort.

The program is designed to enable library staff and information workers to participate in project planning workgroups, network with peers, gain an inside look into ALA structure, and have an opportunity to serve the profession in a leadership capacity early in their careers.

Audrey Barbakoff and Pauline Stacchini, co-chairs of the Emerging Leaders program are excited to welcome the 2019 class. They look forward to working with this most recent cohort of talented and committed early career leaders who are eager to pursue leadership opportunities in the association. “This year's class joins a distinguished group of alumni, many of whom continue to make significant contributions to ALA.”

The Emerging Leaders program will kick off with a day-long session facilitated by Maureen Sullivan during the ALA 2019 Midwinter Meeting in Seattle. Following the kickoff session which includes orientation and training, the program will continue in an online learning and networking environment for six months. The program culminates with a poster session where the 2019 Emerging Leaders will showcase the results of their project planning work during the ALA 2019 Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.

The Emerging Leader participants commit to taking part in all aspects of the program and may have an opportunity to serve on an ALA, division, chapter, roundtable, or affiliate committee or workgroup upon completion.
