Remarkable Leadership and Risk Taking in Modern Librarianship
Wednesday, May 6
9:00 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Nationally known library leaders Steven Bell and Corinne Hill will present an interactive workshop on how to exhibit great leadership in today’s changing library industry. Learn how to approach risk and manage change from a managerial perspective, and how to retain, attract and develop librarian leaders and innovators in your own organization. You will apply leadership strategies to a variety of situations, and discuss your own personal leadership experiences, whether it’s been chairing a committee, leading a project, or directing a library. Both aspiring future library leaders as well as current ones will find this program beneficial.
This program is worth 6 contact hours of continuing education.
Lunch will be served in the restaurant from 12:00 to 1:00pm.
