Spring Orientation Workshops

Monday, June 7 at 3:00 pm

Instead of our usual in-person Spring Trustee Orientation workshop, NHLTA is offering a second opportunity to attend our trustee Orientation workshop on Monday June 7.
Presented by Susan Gaudiello, Liz Tentarelli and Bert Saul, the Orientation workshop is targeted to newly elected or appointed trustees although trustees with a few years under their belts are welcome to attend.

In preparation for the workshop, participants must view the 3-part Orientation Webinar Series accessible HERE. Each runs about 1/2 hour and covers the entire slide presentation. During the workshop, we’ll be engaging participants in a discussion of the essentials of library trustee responsibilities, with a focus on responding to questions.
Registration deadline is June 1. If a library director is registering for trustees, remember to provide the personal email address of each registrant, not the library email contact. Online REGISTRATION only.
If you have any questions, please contact Katrinka Pellecchia.

Trustee/Director Relationships Workshop
By the Book: Best Practices for a Successful Trustee/ Director Relationship

The first step in achieving a successful trustee/director relationship is for all players to  understand their roles and responsibilities as outlined in the NH Library Statutes. Then the trustees and their library director must determine how to carry out those responsibilities as a team, with the ultimate goal of delivering great service to their communities. Mutual respect, open communications and agreement on goals and objectives are key to ultimate success. This workshop explored all these elements and then applied them through discussion of real-life scenarios. The workshop was held November 5, 2019. Download SLIDES and HANDOUT.
