CORE Trustee Training Program now available to all UHLS
UHLS is pleased to announce that our new CORE Trustee
Training program is now available for all member library trustees. This
program is a 90 minute session that covers the fundamentals of being
a library trustee, including roles and responsibilities, NYS minimum
library standards, oaths of office, open meetings law, board/director
roles, etc. The program also emphasizes the CORE values of Community,
Openness, Respect, and Ethics as they relate to the work of a library
This program is valuable for all currently serving library trustees
regardless of their tenure on their board. There is real added value
from having all of a library's trustees share the experience together
(common ground understanding of these fundamentals, encouraging mentoring
of newer trustees by the "old hands", etc.). UHLS also recommends
that the Library Director be included when a member library hosts the
program to encourage that same common ground understanding between the
Library Board and the Director.
The CORE Trustee Training has been designed to be an "on demand"
program that can be conducted at member libraries at a date and time
that is most convenient for trustees to come together. Please contact
Tim Burke (e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org
or phone - (518) 437-9880 x222) to arrange a session for your library
