The Texas Library Association offers several opportunities to practice and develop leadership skills.

In addition to running for elected office in a district, round table, interest group, or division, members may volunteer for committee appointments at the unit or association level. Interested parties should contact the chair of the unit in question or the association president.

The association frequently provides formal training in leadership and management through the annual conference and regular webinars.

The Leadership Development Committee oversees the Texas Accellerated Library Leaders program, better known as the TALL Texans Leadership Development Institute.The Committee is also seeking volunteers to support new TALL Texans as mentors following their Institute experience - interested parties should complete the online application form.

The TLA Executive Board has just approved a new program called the Executive Leadership Immersion. This 4-day seminar is intended to prepare leaders to excel in high level administrative and senior management positions.

Many programs are also provided by the Supervision, Management, and Administration Round Table; the TALL Texans Round Table; and the Professional Issues and Ethics Committee.
