Reaching ForwardJanuary 12, 2015
The 26th Annual Reaching Forward Conference will be held May 8, 2015, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont.
This year's conference features forty-four programs, a continental breakfast, and delicious luncheon. We continue to welcome our exhibitors, who will showcase a variety of goods and services.
Management Skills for the 21st Century
New managers, potential managers, and current managers who could use some rejuvenation--explore how to get the best from your staff. We'll address the what-ifs, the how'd-that-happen, and the why-me's of daily life in management, supervision, and leadership. Explore the concepts of accountability, communication, motivation, and influence. These powerful tools play a vital role in successfully engaging today's workforce. Pre-registration is required for this all-day program. You must register for the conference first, and then select the Management Skills option.
The Performers' Showcase
If you sing, dance, tell stories, perform magic, work with animals, share travel adventures, etc., the Performers' Showcase is a great way to show the library world what you can do. For more information, click here.
Full conference details can be found on the Reaching Forward Web site.
