The Maine State Library and the Maine Library Association are pleased to announce the opening of the application period for the Maine Library Leadership Institute, a year-long program to develop leaderships skills that is open to librarians in all types of libraries. To begin this program, MSL and MLA are partnering to send 7 Maine librarians to the New England Library Leadership Symposium (NELLS) in North Andover, MA. NELLS runs from July 29 - August 2. Tuition and some travel costs will be paid through grants from MLA and the Maine Community Foundation.
You will submit your application to NELLS but Maine applications will be forwarded to a local committee for evaluation. The MLA Chair and NELA representative and the 3 district consultants will make up the selection committee.
NELLS is just the beginning of an exciting year of leadership training and activities planned by the district consultants. For more information and a link to the application, go the MSL website: http://www.maine.gov/msl/mrls/coned/leadership.htm
