The Planning Committee For the 11th Annual Librarian to Librarian Networking Summit Is Accepting Proposals

The Librarian to Librarian Networking Summit is designed to encourage K-12 school media coordinators and library science students preparing to become media coordinators to communicate with each other, and the educational community at large, in order to promote the essential role they play in student academic success. The sessions, covering a wide variety of topics, will be primarily comprised of roundtable discussions facilitated by experts in the profession. Summit attendees will be given an opportunity to attend sessions of their choice.  This year’s summit will be held on March 19, 2016 with “Building Communities” as the theme.

If you would like to serve as a facilitator for the 2016 summit, complete the online Facilitator Proposal Form.  Proposals received by Monday, January 25, 2016, will receive full consideration.  Acceptance notifications will be emailed by Monday, February 1, 2016.  If you have not been contacted by this date, please contact me at zuberbierd14@ecu.edu or 252-328-0406.  If your proposal is selected, the registration fee for you and your co-facilitator will be waived. 

We are requesting individuals to "facilitate" and not "present" since the primary purpose of the Summit is for attendees to network with colleagues and discuss current professional topics in a roundtable setting.  Responsibilities of the facilitator include:

· Guiding session discussion and learning
· Providing interactive activities when possible
· Answering questions
· Recommending resources
· Providing handouts if appropriate. 

Sessions are 75-minutes long, with the first session beginning at 10:00 am.  A limited number of instructional sessions will also be accepted.  To view sessions and facilitator biographies from previous summits, visit our Previous Networking Summits web page.
