ALIA invites you to the 2018 Leadership and Innovation Forum series across Australia

These special events are intended to connect ALIA Members with leaders and influencers in the library and GLAMR sector. This is your opportunity to network with some of the key thinkers and decision-makers; the people who drive our industry.
Our overall theme is leadership and innovation - if we can make these work for us, we will be looking at a bright future for the library and information sector.
The challenge we will be putting to our expert panel in each state and territory in 2018 will be "Meaningful and respectful engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge, culture and heritage – what more do we need to do? "
We'll be asking leaders about their vision for innovation and change in their organisations, and the ways they have supported innovative and successful programs, protocols and activities, as well as seeking insights from experts outside the sector.
Come along and enjoy a fantastic networking opportunity and a convivial drink and canape. Cheers!
