Are you interested in attending the 2018 Research Institute for Public Libraries (RIPL) in Atlanta, Georgia (July 29-August 1, 2018)? Do you have facilitation skills that you want to use at RIPL?

We will be selecting up to 10 RIPL participants to serve as facilitators during the institute. Facilitators should…

  • already be planning to participate in RIPL because of their interest in strengthening their skills in data and evaluation,
  • have experience facilitating small group activities and discussions, and
  • be committed to encouraging participant involvement in group activities and discussions and fostering connections among participants, instructors, and staff.

Prior experience with data and evaluation is a bonus, but is not required.

In addition, the facilitator opportunity is open only to applicants who have NOT attended a prior RIPL national event (either RIPL 2015 at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort, Colorado Springs, CO, or RIPL 2016 at the Inverness Hotel, Englewood, CO).

Benefits to facilitators include:

  • Reduced registration fee: $1,000. This fee includes the curriculum, three nights lodging, and most meals.
  • Guaranteed spot at RIPL 2018.
  • Enhanced experience because of the opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the institute design and curriculum.
