Advocating in the Community and Beyond: In this fifth and final session, we’ll talk about advocacy as a key component of trusteeship. How can boards ensure that their library prospers? How can boards help the library be seen as an essential city service? Those questions, your thoughts, along with some great advocacy websites!
This series of 5 online classes covers the 5 major responsibilities of library boards. Throughout this series, we'll discuss the board’s role in the library operation, including hiring the director, developing policy, overseeing the budget, planning, and advocacy. Because Iowa library boards are considered “administrative,” these classes will help boards better understand their roles and responsibilities.
Individual attendance at any of these online sessions helps the library meet Standard #15: "...all members of the library board of trustees participate in continuing education each year..."
There are five sessions in this series and separate registration is required for each session. You do not have to take all five sessions to participate.
