Trustee Essentials Workshops Begin This Week

essentialEssential 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).

What people are saying about the MHLS Trustee Essentials workshop:
• I expected this to be very dry and frankly a bit boring. Not so. It was absolutely enlightening. Enjoyed it and learned a lot. Thanks so much!

• Excellent program that inspired action steps to introduce to my own library.

• This was great! Although I have been a board member for a long time, I needed this.
