Sara Q. Thompson, recently appointed Adult Services Manager for the
Deschutes Public Library, has been awarded $500 from the Oregon Library
Association to cover expenses for the Library Management Skills Institute
(LMSI) held July 25-27 at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City.   The
three day institute focused on facilitative leadership, decision making,
coaching, and organizational change.  One of the main learning outcomes of
LMSI is to "identify what motivates people and explore options for
increasing staff engagement."

Sara plans to use the techniques and strategies used at LMSI in her work at
Deschutes Public Library and with her involvement in OLA. She is currently
a member of the OLA Website Task Force and is involved in planning the
inaugural Leadership Institute of the Oregon Library Association (LIOLA),
to be held in Pendleton May 16-19, 2018.

Applications for the OLA Leadership Development Scholarship
<http://www.olaweb.org/scholarships-ola>are reviewed three times a year to
support OLA members in developing their leadership abilities.  The next
application deadline is November 30, 2017.

Elaine Hirsch
OLA Leadership Committee, Chair
Associate Director of Watzek Library, Lewis & Clark
