Planning the Transition to a New Board

Following the Municipal Election on October 22nd, municipal councils will begin the process of appointing board members to the library board. Good governance requires that the outgoing board and the library CEO work to ensure that:

  • the transition to the new board is as smooth as possible
  • the municipality has the information it needs to appoint good people to the board
  • returning members commit to mentoring new board members
  • the orientation for new board members is seen by the whole board as an opportunity to renew itself.

Join SOLS consultants Anne Marie Madziak and Peggy Malcolm for an overview of requirements and best practices for managing this important transition and an opportunity to get your questions answered. Please submit ahead of time any questions you might have about this period of transition from one board to the next!

Submit your questions to:

Monday September 24th – 7pm to 8pm

Wednesday September 26 – 2pm to 3pm

Cost: No Charge
