Chapter Leadership Institute (CLI)


The 2021 Chapter Leadership Institute (CLI) was held July 16–17 at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch in St. Louis, Missouri.

Chapters were encouraged to send one or more chapter leaders to CLI, as attendees found valuable information in the sessions being offered. Participants included:

  • Chapter President-Elects
  • New chapter officers
  • Current chapter officers who have not previously attended CLI
  • Individuals interested in becoming a chapter officer

ALA hosted a Welcome Reception on Thursday evening. CLI officially got underway Friday morning and concluded Saturday evening.
