The Northeast Ohio Regional Library System (NEO-RLS) and the State Library of Ohio are pleased to announce plans for the ninth Library Leadership Ohio to be held in the summer of 2010. Building upon a decade of this nationally recognized program spearheaded by CAMLS and NEO-RLS, the State Library of Ohio is taking the lead role in Library Leadership Ohio.
Library Leadership Ohio is a biennial intensive, residential leadership education program. Graduates of the first eight classes have seen their visions manifested within their organizations. State Librarian Jo Budler served as a mentor for the past two Library Leadership Ohio programs. “We are fortunate to have the opportunity to lead this innovative program that has developed the talents of many leaders now serving Ohio’s libraries,” said Budler. “In the sprit of ongoing collaboration and appreciation for NEO-RLS’s successful 2008 program, we welcome their participation in the 2010.”
“The 2008 program that NEO-RLS led was extremely successful, however we recognize that leadership programs of this caliber in other states are normally coordinated by their state library,” noted NEO-RLS Executive Director Bill Martino. “We are confident that the State Library of Ohio will build upon this program’s success, and continue to broaden the diversification and participation of this nationally recognized program. “Tags: Library Leadership Ohio
