ALA-APA Programs for the People at ALA Annual Conference

Engaging Excellence Through Leadership and Mentoring

Friday, July 10, 3:30 – 5:00 pm, Hilton Lake Huron

Leadership is essential in our roles and it is different from management. However, in addition to leadership, we need to be able to grow a demand for the opportunities we have within our associations as a means of perpetuating our profession, and mentoring is a prime way of achieving this objective. The program will examine the critical leadership behaviors that need to be consistently displayed, and the impact of mentoring (internal and external) on elevating the profile of the profession.
