Are You Ready? ALA Midwinter Taiga Forum Conversation Social event McCormick Place West
W474b
Description :

This is a time of unprecedented retirements and thus University Librarian/Dean job openings.

Maybe you’ve been contacted by colleagues, search firms, or others asking if you are interested in applying for a University Librarian/Director/Dean position. Perhaps you haven’t been approached about such a position, but might be interested. What would it take for you to feel that you’re ready to step up to the next level? How do you signal your interest to colleagues and recruiters?

Join Taiga as we engage in an open conversation that brings to the surface the doubts, excitement, and world of possibilities we all experience. We’ll discuss individual strengths and the aspects of the job you don’t have experience in and how you gain these skills (ex: budget, fundraising).

LOCATION: McCormick Convention Center. W474b
DATE: Friday, Jan. 30th 2pm – 4pm

After a soul baring (but mightily supportive) conversation, join Taiga as we mosey to the MX Lounge (connected to the MCC) for the Taiga Forum Social.

MCC shuttles run until 7:30pm.

Taiga Forum thanks Innovative Interfaces Inc. for supplying our meeting spaces
