(via the Illinois Library Association)

Applications are now being accepted for the Elevate Illinois Libraries Leadership Program (Elevate). This year’s program will take place on Saturday, April 18, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, at the Illinois State Library in Springfield. Elevate 2020 sessions will explore the concept of judging versus joining behaviors and the types of behaviors that lead to inclusion as well as those that exclude people.

Future leaders from all types of libraries (academic, public, school, and special) and all parts of Illinois are encouraged to apply. Applicants are not required to hold any specific positions in their library, but should have an interest in developing as a leader. An MLIS is not required. Past Elevate participants may apply to attend this year.

The registration fee for the program is $100 per participant. This fee covers materials and meals. Participants will be responsible for their own travel expenses. The application deadline is Friday, March 6. Please see the Elevate website for instructions on submitting an application.
