Celebrate Library Leaders and Advocates with ULC’s Annual Leadership Awards!

July 11th, 2016

We are excited to announce that ULC is now accepting nominations for the Urban Leader Award and applications for the Joey Rodger Leadership Award. Both awards recognize transformative leadership that advances the impact and strategic role of public libraries in communities across North America.

The Urban Leader Award recognizes civic leaders and public library advocates whose work with local government, funders, community leaders and others elevates the essential role that public libraries play in driving community well-being.

The Joey Rodger Leadership Award, in the amount of $5,000, provides a library CEO/director or senior manager of a ULC member library with an opportunity to strengthen his/her skills through a structured professional development undertaking.

The deadline for both awards is Friday, August 12, 2016. The winners will be notified in September and the awards will be presented at the 2016 ULC Annual Forum: ULC Libraries - Getting to the Evidence in Kansas City, Missouri. Please confirm that nominees and applicants can be present to accept the award before submitting an application form.
