Lead­er­ship is all about serv­ing. With the chal­lenges in the li­brar­i­an­ship pro­fes­sion in this era, those who are re­spon­si­ble to lead the as­so­ci­a­tion must have the needed skills, vi­sion, and the right at­ti­tude to ad­dress these chal­lenges. Lead­ers of as­so­ci­a­tions can­not be com­pla­cent. They must see to it that ev­ery­one is heard, bal­ance the ar­gu­ments, take the nec­es­sary ac­tions, be pru­dent in han­dling things, and al­low all stake­hold­ers to get in­volved in solv­ing the is­sues and con­cerns that af­fect the as­so­ci­a­tion and the pro­fes­sion in gen­eral. This pa­per presents the dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios in lead­ing a li­brary as­so­ci­a­tion, specif­i­cally the Philip­pine Li­brar­i­ans As­so­ci­a­tion Inc. (PLAI), and draw from the par­tic­i­pants the is­sues which they think should be acted upon and pro­pose res­o­lu­tions on ad­dress­ing these con­cerns. Key­words: lead­er­ship; li­brary as­so­ci­a­tions; pro­fes­sional or­ga­ni­za­tions
