Are You Ready for Leadership?
Regardless of your role in a library or in a library association, developing a leadership plan is an important tool in being focused on your goals. In this session participants will discuss some characteristics of effective leadership and learn the process for developing a leadership plan.

Management in Context
In this session, participants will come away with information about systems thinking and decision-making that will lead to more effective operations within their organizations.

Both sessions welcome staff at all levels and in both academic and public library environments.
