The Middle Managers Breakfast, sponsored by LexisNexis, will address the practical issue of how middle managers should position themselves now to move to the next job level. Even those not interested in a new position themselves will be interviewing others for jobs at their own libraries, and it will be helpful to know what is considered expected levels of expertise for various positions that may be outside of their own specialty.
Those attending will be encouraged to choose from a short list of current job categories and then sit at a table with others who have made the same selection. Three speakers, representing different areas of library management, will open the program with introductory comments. Following these remarks, each table will discuss practical applications and action strategies.
We hope this provocative topic will inspire middle managers from every time zone to attend the 7:00 am Tuesday morning breakfast.
