>>ALCTS Medium Heads Discussion Group on Succession Planning
>>The ALCTS Technical Services Administrators of Medium Sized Research
>>Libraries Discussion Group will meet at ALA Midwinter from 10:30-12 on
>>Sat. Jan. 12 in Franklin 4 of the Marriott. Our discussion topic is
>>"Succession Planning". Not only will many Deans/Directors of libraries
>>retire in the next few years, but also a multitude of Baby Boomers in
>>positions at every level are thinking about retiring. In the current
>>environment, the future of libraries could depend on the visionary
>>leadership of those who are fairly new to the field.  How do we prepare
>>for this sudden leaving of many of the top library managers in the
>>country? How do we develop the next generation of library leaders?
>>Small groups will conduct round table discussions based on a set of
>>supplied questions and then share their ideas with the room.
