The application process for the 2015 “Leading to the Future” ALA Leadership Institute (Aug. 9-13, Eaglewood Resort, Itasca, Illinois) is
now open, with applications accepted through April 8, 2015.
Building on the success of the 2013 and 2014 ALA Leadership Institutes, and with support from Innovative Interfaces, the four-day immersive leadership development program for up to 40 mid-career librarians will be led again by ALA Past-President Maureen Sullivan and ACRL Content Strategist Kathryn Deiss.
The institute helps future library leaders develop and practice their leadership skills in areas critical to the future of the libraries they lead. Through reflective and active learning, it offers participants an opportunity to delve into leadership practices, concepts and frameworks and to shape their own sustainable leadership vision and ethos, at the same time building a learning community and network. With content based on real-world cases and nuanced situations, participants explore topics related to the greatest challenges and possibilities of leading into a future marked by turbulence and ambiguity.
