Student Johana Flores Chosen for ALA Student-to-Staff

December 7, 2018

SIS student Johana Flores has been selected by American Library Association (ALA) to participate in the ALA Student-to-Staff program at the 2019 ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC, June 20-June 25.

Established in 1973, the program allows 40 students, both ALA members and members of their school's ALA student chapter, to attend and participate in an annual conference in exchange for working 16 hours for ALA staff during the conference. These students also receive free conference registration, housing, and a per diem for meals.

Students are selected and nominated by their faculty advisors. Among other criteria, each student must be a current ALA member and remain so through the ALA Annual Conference, and cannot have previously participated in the program.

Congratulations, Johana!
