PaLA recognizes that we have many librarians with great leadership potential and we need to insure that we continue to have good leadership in libraries and in our organization. The PaLA Academy of Leadership Studies (PALS) is a cooperative initiative between PaLA and the Office of Commonwealth Libraries to offer leadership development for librarians to help them reach their full leadership potential.

This 3.5 day workshop is designed for MLS/MLIS degree librarians whether they are fresh out of school or have been in the field for years. Participants will work closely with each other and with appointed mentors to explore what it means to be a leader and how they can make the choice to be leaders for their libraries. Participation in this workshop requires a 1 year commitment to assigned PALS group project. All participants must hold an appropriate degree from an American Library Association accredited school at the time of nomination.  

The registration fee includes all meals, lodging, custom content, supplies and professional facilitation. (Estimated Value: $1100)   Transportation is on your own.
Please note: Requests for refunds/cancellations will not be processed after April 30, 2020.


This project is made possible, in part, by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.
