“Being able to connect with leaders from various SLA units in a face-to-face manner, helps to strengthen and grow connections within your network and have resources to reach out to throughout the year.”  –Janel Kinlaw, Chair-Elect, Leadership and Management Division


“I got great ideas for my own professional development and also for leading and growing my chapter. I also met lots of fellow informational professionals to expand my network and learn from. “ -Marj Atkinson, SLA Texas Chapter President 2018, SLA Professional Development Advisory Council member


“The Leadership Symposium provided content and perspectives that will be useful to me not only as a leader in SLA, but also as I lead my libraries.  I found the discussion on building teams based on strengths of members insightful to always include at least one member who falls into one of four categories:  strategic thinking, relationship building, influencing, and executing.”  ~Leslie Reynolds, Interim Dean, University of Colorado Boulder


“As this was my first Leadership Symposium, I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I found was a group of dedicated information professionals engaged in lively, interesting discussions and networking. The event was well-planned and executed, and I came away motivated for the coming year, with many new friends and some great ideas. Thanks to SLA for planning this terrific event!” – Jennifer Bartlett, Interim Associate Dean of Teaching, Learning, & Research, University of Kentucky Libraries


“I left Leadership Symposium with new skills and insights on how to be an effective leader in SLA, but more than this, I left with insights on my personal and professional journey, new friends, and a greater appreciation that  SLA is definitely the place for me.” -Michael Sholinbeck, President-Elect, San Francisco Bay Area Chapter; and Outreach/Instruction Librarian, Sheldon Margen Public Health Library, UC Berkeley.
