Essential Trustee Duties and Responsibilities
Presented by Rebekkah Smith Aldrich, MHLS Coordinator for Library Sustainability and Merribeth Advocate, MHLS Assistant Director.
Especially for new board members, but open to all. Library board members looking for essential, baseline information to increase their effectiveness in serving on a library board will benefit from attending this session. Attendees will learn effective ways to carry out the nine essential library trustee duties and responsibilities (everything the library board does either falls within one of these duties or is done in support of them).
Comments from 2012 attendees:
- "Extremely well organized, informative and useful in providing reference material for the future. An essential introduction for a new trustee conducted in a professional and clear manner."
- "This was incredibly helpful and inspiring!"
- "I'm more confident now!"
