Dear Colleagues:

Permit me this opportunity to introduce the fourteenth (14) 'Northern Exposure to Leadership Institute' (NELI), to be held December 3rd to 9th, 2016, a seasonal experience!

NELI is intended to motivate librarians to develop their leadership potential. Our intent is to identify individuals who aggressively aspire, and who so demonstrate their aspiration to lead libraries or information service organizations or programs in the 21st century.

The program is premised on the value of experiential learning, within the context of a beautiful Rocky Mountain venue, the Jasper Park Lodge in Jasper National Park, British Columbia.

We encourage the nomination of individuals or seek the nomination for individuals with demonstrated leadership potential as well as intention and an ability to share with others their vision and enthusiasm for the future of library and information service.

Only those nominations by employers (institutional, organizational, corporate, etc.), library and information studies schools, or library organizations will be considered.

With warm personal regards, I am,

Ernie Ingles,
Executive Director,
Northern Exposure to Leadership
