New library trustees start in May. This workshop is for new trustees, experienced trustees, and librarians wanting to learn about being a good trustee. Starting with a list of trustee “responsibilities”,
this workshop describes basic responsibilities, slowing periodically, to emphasis important points.

The following topics will be covered.
•  What is the proper relationship between librarian and library board?
•  What is the source of library funding?
•  What is the budget cycle?
•  What are the eligibility requirements for receiving the System grant?
•  If boards have seven members, why is a quorum now five?
•  What is an executive session?
•  What are the ethics board members should follow?
•  What is a Capital Improvement Fund.
•  Who should sign library checks?
•  If someone asks to see board documents, how soon must you supply them?
•  What should you be telling your local government officials?
•  What are the goals of the CKLS Strategic Plan
 
 We look forward to seeing you at this event.
