|Featured Learning Moment.
In October we announced the FULL availability of Leadership by Design e-learning modules on LearnHQ. It’s an exciting development in the creation of affordable (free!) and scalable training for developing our valuable public library boards in Ontario.
Twice a month we’ll feature helpful tips and resources to support effective public library boards.
A specific lesson/development activity will be featured every two weeks for Boards to engage in as a team consisting of:
- Small Board meeting activity
- Post meeting exercises
This issue we’re highlighting Module 1: Board Effectiveness – Budgets.
To access each resource quickly, please log-in to LearnHQ(upper right hand corner of the main page). Once signed in each link below will take you directly to the suggested resource.
Consider asking your board members to engage in these learning (and thinking) activities:
- Pre-readings: Your budget is based on your library’s priorities, strategic and long-term goal. Review the key points on Budget presentation
- Board meeting activity: At your next board meeting, discuss the Checklist of documents to prepare for your council budget presentation.
- Post board meeting exercises: Download a sample Presentation Outline that will help your board finalize their budget presentation process.
