An opportunity has come to our attention for federal librarians to
participate in the National Leadership Institute (NLI) at the University
of Maryland--University College. NLI is affiliated with the Center
for Creative Leadership. This Institute, which is almost 25
years old, has an international reputation and a proven track record in
significantly augmenting the careers of many of the recognized leaders in
civil and military service. You can find out more by visiting the
A one-week program specifically oriented toward
information professionals that are already in leadership positions in
government or show great leadership potential is planned for March
20 - 24, 2006 in College Park, Maryland.
NLI is on the GSA/MOBIS Schedule and is offering a discount, based on
participation. The registration fee is $6,175 for 18 to 20 participants
and $5,850 for 21 to 24 participants. As of this date, there are 10
registrants. The cost assumes one will commute, but a lodging is
available for approximately $159 per night.
The cost will be significant, but we wanted to share this
opportunity with you since those who have participated have called
NLI "the best thing that I ever did professionally."
Happy Holidays to all--
