The North Carolina Library Association held the 2012 Leadership Institute on October 25th thru October 28th at the Caraway Conference Center. The mission of the Leadership Institute is as follows:
"The Mission of the North Carolina Library Association (NCLA) Leadership Institute is to create opportunities for learning and skill building in leadership and mentoring. The Institute will cultivate an improved understanding of self and others, while inspiring participants to serve in leadership roles within the profession at local, state and national levels"
The University Libraries were well represented by four of our library faculty; Mike Crumpton, Assistant Dean for Administrative Services, led the planning committee that created the mission and logo and planned the program.
