Join CLA President Robert Karatsu in a conversation with the iconic director of the San Diego County Library system Jose Aponte as they discuss “What is Leadership?” Both Jose and Robert have led highly successful organizations (San Diego County Library won Library Journal’s 2012 “Library of the Year” and in 2013, while Robert was the director of the Rancho Cucamonga Public Library, they won the 2013 National Medal for Museum and Library Service) but two more seemingly different people you will not meet. Listen in to hear what they have in common, and how they define that most elusive term “leadership”. And as an added bonus, Robert will also be asking as many library directors as possible who are meeting at the upcoming Public Library Director’s Forum to give a *one* sentence definition of “leadership”. Hear what they all have to say at this “Thursday with CLA”!
