**Goals, Objectives, Projects completed (including, but not limited to, any procedures, tip sheets, checklists, etc. created during the reporting year):


We ran a successful ten month long Career Mentoring Program, with thirty pairs of newer and seasoned librarians. According to a survey sent upon the conclusion of the program, people felt generally positive about the experience and gave lots of suggestions for improvement that will be passed on to the incoming chair(s).


**Action Items/Issues To Be Resolved What plans/projects remain which will be carried over or postponed until next year? Have there been any substantial changes in plans requiring a reconsideration or cancellation of projects? Information regarding such will be helpful for future chairs and planners.


Sam will pass on a good report of the nascent Career Mentoring Program to the new chair(s) and offer to act as resource person to help continue this valuable assignment, if the new chair(s) would like to proceed with it.


A budget for a reception at Annual for those participating in Conference Mentoring was just approved at the Board meeting in New Orleans.
