25 library directors from IHLS participated in Directors U! The week covered what new directors need to know and also provided a great opportunity to build the networks that support us all!
In addition to the participants, Amy Byers and Christine Westerlund (Chatham); Brandon Stokes (Champaign Public); and Sara Zumwalt (Litchfield) presented during the five-day event. Leslie Bednar, Ellen Popit and Diana Sussman (Carbondale) served on the committee. Finally, Amanda McKay (Effingham) served as the co-chair.
It was a good week for IHLS!
