New England Library Leadership Symposium

NELA and the state library associations of the six New England states have developed this program over the last 2 years. It is called NELLS (New England Library Leadership Symposium).

NELLS is an intensive 4-day course for "up and coming" library leaders. The purpose of this symposium is to foster the mentoring and development of leaders for library associations (state and regional), for the profession, and for our communities. NELLS has been created through a cooperative effort of the New England Library Association and all six New England state library associations.

The Symposium will have 26 participants (4 from each state and 2 from NELA), 6 mentors (library leaders with 15 or more years of experience), 2 facilitators (faculty to be announced), and 2 Symposium co-coordinators. Participants are required to attend all Symposium sessions.

Program information is available on the NELA web site at
Information is also available right on the front page of the NELA web site. The deadline for applications is January 24, 2003. If you have any questions, contact Shelly Edwards at
