Get Involved with the Section
This section was developed as a response to a recent survey asking librarians across the US if they felt like they had or have enough training on management topics to help them excel in their positions. The answers ranged from merely "sort of" to "definitely not"!! So, what can we do to bridge that gap? Start a section within a statewide professional organization of course! This new section will work to provide professional development opportunities for librarians at all levels to increase their management and leadership skills.
