Innovative library leaders don't just launch creative programs and services, they drive their teams to dream bigger and to rethink their processes, strategies and potential. ULC invites top-level ULC library leaders to join us for a special CEO Session to kick off the 2019 ULC Forum, offering a one-of-a-kind opportunity to network with peers who are shaping the future of our field, and to engage in a transformative conversation about innovative leadership for 21st-century libraries.
