The Library is launching a new process to recruit people interested in joining the Board of Trustees.
The Library's bylaws set the size of the Board to 10 members and term of its Trustees to one 5-year period. Every year, two trustees leave the Board and two join. As a result, we are continuously recruiting new members and decided it would be better to revise our annual recruitment strategy and replace it with a process that results in a pool of talented people that are interested in being considered for the Board of Trustees next year or in the future.
Last year, the Board of Trustees adopted a five -year strategic plan and in the process identified skills and experiences necessary to successfully, execute the plan. In reviewing current and outgoing Trustee skills, we have a good handle on the desired skills/experience we are seeking for future members. Specifically people with knowledge or experience in:
• nonprofit management and/or finance
• people with special needs
• endowment development
If you would like to be considered for Board membership, please contact the Board Chair in care of Library Director Peter Benson.
Thank you for considering joining the Board of Trustees and for supporting the Saranac Lake Free Library. We hope to hear from you!
