BoK Domains: Professionalism + Leadership at Every Level
The concept of leadership is a topic of frequent discussion and programming. But where do you begin if you want to develop leadership skills? Professional organizations can provide opportunities for cultivating and expanding these skills. This panel will include several librarians who have held leadership roles outside their workplaces. They will discuss their learning experiences, dos and don’ts, how not to over-commit yourself, and offer tips for moving into leadership roles in special interest sections, local chapters, other professional organizations, and nonlibrary-related activities. They will also touch on how they have translated the skills they learned as leaders within these organizations back to their workplaces.
