Trustee/Director Relationships Workshop Resources

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.
