MEETINGS & ONLINE COMMUNITIES

NEW CEO PEER GROUP

The purpose of the New CEO Peer Group is to support newly appointed CEOs of public libraries as you learn about and grow into your new responsibilities.  It is a safe place to ask questions and learn together and from each other.  

Because new CEOs, at any given time, are geographically dispersed in communities across the province, the group meets virtually, in two ways: 

  • An online community of practice, offering a safe way to ask questions and seek advice
  • Participative webinars twice a year (see below for dates), providing an opportunity to engage in learning conversations about the various roles and responsibilities and challenges of a public library CEO

The webinars are NOT presentations; they are networking opportunity for you and your peers. You will reap the greatest benefit by participating in the conversation. SOLS staff will provide a background reading, shape the conversation and facilitate the interactions but it's up to you as a participant to make it relevant and meaningful.

During this webinar we will focus on strategies and best practices for board orientation; we will identify opportunities and resources to support a successful board transition.

The next webinar is scheduled for:
