Each year CLEL–Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy–hosts a conference focused on serving children birth-6 and their families, and it’s the only annual conference of its kind in the country! And this year will mark two firsts for this conference: it will be virtual, and it will include a Leadership Institute!
The first of this 2-day event will be a Leadership Institute on October 8; this event is geared for staff that are already in leadership positions, as well as those who wish to lead from where they are, and those who are looking to move up into official leadership positions. The Leadership Institute will feature ALSC president Kirby McCurtis as its keynote speaker, plus thought-provoking breakout sessions and some important calls to action. The main conference will be on October 9, with Library Journal Mover and Shaker Janet Damon as the keynote speaker and plentiful breakout sessions on a wide variety of topics. Both days are excellent opportunities to network with colleagues from across the state and country, snag some great ideas to try, learn something new and deepen your knowledge, and have some fun!
View the full schedule for both days here.
Registration is now open; register for the Leadership Institute and/or the Conference online. Registration deadline is September 23.
The fee to attend the Leadership Institute is $20; the main Conference is $25; and the fee to attend both days is $45.
Oh, and if you’re not already a CLEL member, please join this unique organization–it’s FREE!
Thanks; we hope to see you at the CLEL Leadership Institute and Conference!
