The next OLA GOLD Leadership Institute will be held November 6-8, 2019 at Lake Murray Lodge in Ardmore. It will be the sixth Institute. The first Institute was held in 2004 with others following at three-year intervals.


What Have Past Participants Said?

Through OLA Gold, I developed a network of colleagues across the state in public, school and academic libraries and gained a knowledge of leadership styles and honed my own skills which has helped me both on the job and with my OLA involvement.
Sarah Robbins, 2012-2013 OLA President

The 2004 Institute made it possible for me to grow as a librarian by giving me the skills I needed to chair or co-chair several OLA committees in the years following the Institute. This leadership institute is crucial for developing leaders in our library community.
Marcia Johnson, Miami Public Library Director
