What core skills will be addressed by “Are You Trust-Worthy”?
Core Skill Two: Developing an Effective Board and Core Skill Four: Assessing and Adopting Policy.
Participating in this program will be an excellent investment for both trustees and librarians. Trustees who are trained to maintain trustee ethics not only help their library board to function effectively, but protect the library from political and legal problems. Trustees must exercise their authority with care, place the library’s interests before their own, and uphold the library’s policies while advancing its mission.
Library directors – invite your board to the library to watch this session.
Just attach one of your library computers to your digital projector or use a large monitor. Use computer speakers for the audio.
Recruit a volunteer to drive the keyboard so your group can participate in the discussions through chat.
Make the most of your time together by using Gina’s challenge questions to have your own discussion of the everyday ethical situations your library board faces.
Note: This session will be archived and CE credit will be available through archive viewing.
