ALA Governance Institute
Whether you’re currently engaged in association governance as an ALA Councilor, an ALA board member, or as part of another organization, or whether you want to learn more as you plan your career and leadership development, the new ALA Governance Institute will provide invaluable insights into critical issues related to effective governance, with a focus on communications and financial analysis, review, and stewardship.
Offering the leadership and professional development skills needed for impactful leadership and effective decision-making, the AGI is inspired by the recognition that association leaders and prospective leaders face increasingly complex leadership situations and high expectations for responsiveness to a wide range of constituents and stakeholders.
The AGI runs 8:00am-12:00pm, Friday, January 27, 2023. AGI attendees will have a choice of up to two of three 90-minute sessions: Strategic Communications for Executive Board Members (for Executive Board members); Effective Communication for Governance Meetings (for ALA Council and Committee leaders and interested LLX registrants); and Financial Analysis and Review for ALA Member Leaders (required for ALA Executive Board Members and offered to ALA Council and Committee leaders and interested LLX registrants). Seasoned ALA leaders, staff, and other subject matter experts will serve as institute faculty.
