Leadership Development Opportunity: Attend leadership workshop at ALA Annual Conference at deeply discounted rate

The Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASCLA) is hosting a leadership preconference at the 2013 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago, and RUSA is offering a limited number of discounted seats to RUSA leadership to participate in this preconference.

At “Servant Leadership in Your Library”, you’ll learn how servant leadership can change the dynamics of a library–large or small–by cultivating strong loyalty from both employees and library users. Servant leaders focus outwardly and work in partnership with their staff and communities. Through exercises, group discussion, real-world stories and personal reflection led by professional library trainer Linda Bruno, participants will develop their servant leader persona. Linda has presented workshops for ASCLA before and received rave reviews! Learn more about the preconference here, and visit Linda’s website to learn more about the fantastic work she does.

The content of this event will be valuable not only for your professional role at your library, but for your work with RUSA, too!

With the appropriate coupon code, you’ll pay just $139.50 for this event–ALA member registration is valued at $300!

This opportunity is limited to:

  • Current and incoming chairs for RUSA-level committees
  • Current and incoming chairs for section committees
  • Current and incoming RUSA Board of Directors members
  • Current and incoming section executive committee members

In exchange for this discount, RUSA would like those who attend this preconference to work with Gary White (past-president) and Kathleen Kern (vice-president) on formulating RUSA’s future leadership development program, and specifically determining what sort of content and activities should be provided to benefit the association and its members.

Interested in taking advantage of this fantastic opportunity? You must obtain the discount code by May 25, 2013 and register by June 1, 2013. There are a limited number of slots available, so don’t delay!
