The TALL Texans Leadership Development Institute is now accepting applications for the 2019 program.

The TALL Texans Leadership Development Institute provides advanced leadership and management education in service to all the libraries of Texas and the communities they serve. Participants study strategic planning, risk-taking, conflict negotiation, teambuilding, coaching, ethics, advocacy, personal career planning, and more. This transformational program helps attendees learn and embrace their potential to take new initiative for their institutions, their profession, and their stakeholders. A full list of institute topics may be found here.

The TALL Texans Institute will be held July 21-25, 2019, at the Montserrat Retreat Center.

The application form (also available under the TLA Members Only section) must be finalized by January 25, 2019. Applicants may update and revise their forms as often as desired until that date.

Prerequisites for the seminar include 5 years of work experience in libraries (at any library, at any level), membership in the Texas Library Association by Feb. 1, 2019, and a completed application form as noted above. Applications will be reviewed for evidence of leadership and communication skills; a desire to serve one's library, community, and profession; and the the ability to turn training into practical application.
