International Leadership Training



I'm writing on behalf of Barbara Ford, director of the
Mortenson Center for International Library Programs, and
Susan Schnuer, assistant director, to notify you of a
wonderful leadership training opportunity.

During November 2006, the Mortenson Center and the Illinois
State Library will host the second "Thinking Outside the
Borders: Library Leadership in a World Community" institute.
This leadership retreat targets middle-level to senior-level
library managers in the U.S., Mexico, Canada, and Latin
America, and is funded by the U.S. Institute of Museum and
Library Services (IMLS).

Additional information and application instructions are
available at the following websites: and

Please feel free to forward this message to anyone who might
be interested in applying for this exciting program, and also
to contact us if you have any questions.
