The Communications Committee is responsible for publicizing and supporting Rhode Island Library Association activities using a variety of communication tools. Responsibilities include publishing the RILA Bulletin, managing social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, and exploring other mediums as needed. The Communications Committee may cooperate with publicity efforts of the Public Relations Committee to promote library services statewide. It publicizes RILA and its activities to both internal and external constituents, by promoting information about libraries, librarians, and RILA. The Committee is charged with increasing the visibility and public awareness of RILA initiatives, all libraries, and library services in our state.
The goal of the RILA Career Mentorship Program is to provide encouragement, support and guidance to early and mid-career library staff to promote their professional development and growth. Mentoring is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the life of another person and to gain new insights into our rich profession. You can also give and receive guidance and take your career to the next level. To learn more, visit the Mentorship homepage.
