[Michlib-l] composition of library board committees

Hi Melissa,
At our public library board committee meetings We have staff (besides the director) attend meetings when they have something pertinent to add. Our main example would be the Financial Committee when we have the library's finance director attend. This works out good.  We don't have any staff (besides the director) automatically attending meetings of a particular committee.

Hi, Melissa,
We don’t have staff on Board committees, and in fact I don’t think it would be appropriate to do so. We do have outside community members on Board committees but never staff. And the Director is never a voting member of the Board committees.

Hi all--

Happy Friday!

I have a question about board committees.  Those here at Lapeer have traditionally had a staff member on them and currently, that process is causing some headaches.  For me.  Is staff involvement in a board committee--personnel, facilities--usual, or is the staff usually represented by the library director only?

Thank you for your input.
