Are you ready to Go ALL-In?
What is ALL- In?
The Arkansas Library Leadership Institute (ALL-In) is a 3-day leadership event for library staff, created and implemented by the Arkansas State Library to develop emerging leaders within the library profession, the local community, and in life. The first Institute was held in 2015. Several of our participants will continue their commitment by acting as mentors to the participants of our second Institute to be held November 14-16, 2018.
Who should apply for the Institute?
Library staff across the state of Arkansas whose personal and professional goals include leadership. The Arkansas Library Leadership Institute selection committee is seeking a diverse set of applicants, degreed and non-degreed alike, based on type of library, organizational responsibility, and geography.
Who is leading the Institute and what topics will be covered?
Dr. Sharon Morris and Kieran Hixon of the Colorado State Library will be facilitating the 2018 Institute. Topics covered will include: Self Awareness, Leadership Basics, Leading from Every Level, and Determining Success. Chosen participants will be sent a copy of the book Strengths Finder. We will be using the results in the training.
Where is the event taking place?
DeGray Lake Resort State Park is Arkansas's only resort state park. Set in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains and nestled along the north shore of DeGray Lake, one of the region's five Diamond Lakes known for their crystal clear waters. Each participant will have their own room. There are walking trails and a fitness center at the lodge. Sessions will take place in on site meetings rooms. All meals will be provided by or served in the Shoreline Restaurant. Dietary needs will be accommodated if possible.
What is the cost of the Institute?
Selected applicants will be responsible for a portion of the cost which will cover meals, lodging, and materials for the entire 3-day workshop. The participants of the 2018 Institute will be responsible for $300 towards the costs of the Institute. Financial forms will be sent out to the applicants chosen for the Institute. Your library may pay for your participation. Payment is expected on or before November 4, 2018.
