Trustees will learn how to successfully prepare for the departure of a director due to retirement or moving to a new library.
We will cover what the current director and board must put in place prior to the placement of a new director and discuss the role of trustees in successfully onboarding a new director and the transition of them into their new role. We will provide a checklist of items to prepare for new library directors that will be supplied after the presentation.
