Directors Only

Networking and Education for Library Directors

Because you, in your role as a Director, face special challenges, we’re committed to giving you special resources. We know that the role of a Library Director can be very rewarding and very fulfilling. It also can be very lonely and frustrating. For that reason, the goal of the ATLA Directors Only Community is to provide you with peer wisdom, support and connections designed to help you succeed in what is probably the most challenging job you’ve ever had.

Whether you want to strategize or socialize, participate in the Directors Only discussion list and Community space.
