CHICAGO—Core hosts the webinar “Build Better: Effective Library Project Management” on August 16, 2023, at 1 p.m. CT. This webinar provides a project management overview that can be applied to all types of library improvements that will help you achieve your system’s objectives. Participants will be given strategies for effectively communicating your project goals to a design and construction team and will leave with the tools necessary to prepare a detailed needs assessment and project scope. Experienced project manager Toni Lombardozzi, who has a background in architecture and construction project management, is currently overseeing a $108.5 million capital improvement project that includes small renovations to larger-scale new construction. Lombardozzi has spent the last six years on the project and will share insights into the cross-discipline experience of working closely with both library staff and design and construction teams and provide tips and tools on how to make this type of communication effective. Those that have worked on design/construction enterprises before will find innovative ideas for successful project implementation, and those that are new to it will learn the groundwork for efficiently advancing projects.
