CALLING ALL LIBRARY BOARDS....Register today!
"EFFECTIVE BOARD GOVERNANCE 2007 SERIES -
An extraordinary new series for public library trustees
with Ken Haycock
SESSION TITLE: The Board Chair and the CEO: Shared Leadership for Board Development
Most trustees realize they need training but many only receive a tour and a binder from the CEO and a hearty "welcome aboard" from the Chair.
Powerful, effective library boards are developed over time and a longer term plan for development makes good sense. What do trustees need to know? What are their roles? What are the topics? What are the priorities?
If you truly want a powerful board, you must learn how to develop powerful and knowledgeable trustees. Here is a vision of planning between the Chair of the Board and the CEO that challenges our everyday practice.
Wednesday, March 7th
1 hour Audio Conference
8 PM Eastern Time (5 PM PT Pacific Time)
PLEASE NOTE: If you are in a different time zone from Eastern or Pacific PLEASE check the time of your call to make sure you do not miss this.
Dr. Haycock is a world leader in libraries, trusteeship and information science. He is the biggest benefit of taking one of these courses. Rarely will you get the chance to engage such practical wisdom, born out of years of research and very practical experience. He is demanding of himself and he is demanding of you. It is totally refreshing no matter how many times you hear him.
