This program is a rewarding and simple way to volunteer. Participating in the conference guides program does not take much time and is limited to the duration of the conference. Watch your email for the official call. Additionally, the ARLIS/NA Yearlong Career Mentoring Program will be sending out a call for mentors in December. Please consider volunteering; being a mentor has great benefits!
