Library Journal’s Lead the Change: Professional Development for Today’s Librarian series offers timely resources and tools to stay ahead of the innovations and changes steering the library profession. Librarians can attend in-person, hands-on events ranging from leadership skill development to engagement marketing.  David Bendekovic, program developer and lead instructor at the Pennsylvania Library Association Academy for Leadership Studies, and his co-facilitators, including recent LJ Librarians of the Year and Movers and Shakers, provide insights, best practices and strategies that will help you transform your career, your library and your community.

Lead the Change is designed for ALL library staff members and stakeholders – directors, managers and supervisors; trustees; and staff at every level across all departments in public, academic and school (K-12) institutions. You may attend alone or in groups with peers. Directors are encouraged to send staff members for a unique team building experience! Groups of five or more will receive 10% off of each ticket.

Over the course of 2012 and 2013, more than 2,300 librarians representing over 1,000 libraries participated in Lead the Change workshops. This is your chance to participate in this highly acclaimed program and walk away with the tools needed to lead the change in your library and community. Register Today!
