An exciting component of ALE conferences is the Conference Connectors program (formerly the conference Mentor Program). This program, founded in 2014 was created in hopes of fostering an inclusive environment for our first-time attendees and helping them to get to know both the organization and its members on a more personal level, with the ultimate purpose of heightening the value of the conference experience for our first time attendees. The conference opening reception and newcomer welcome sub-committee invites new conference attendees to participate and ALE members to volunteer as ALE Connectors.
ALE members and non-members who are attending the conference for the first time.
ALE members who have attended at least one ALE conference and feel confident in their knowledge of the association and their abilities to help assimilate newcomers into the conference in an inclusive and positive manner. These ALE members take pride in the association and are committed to helping newcomers build relationships and find ways to become actively engaged with the association.
Newcomers and Connectors may request to participate in this Conference Connectors Program as they complete the on-line conference registration form.
At the conclusion of the conference, participants will be asked to evaluate their experiences on the post-conference survey.
