LTA Goes to NYLA Conference in Saratoga Springs
Fall 2017 issue of TrusteeRegistration is still open on the NYLA website for their Annual Conference, November 10-11, in Saratoga Springs. Join us on Friday, November 10, 9:00 am – 10:00 for LTA's featured program ... Title: The Proper Care and Feeding of Your Library Director
Join Cassie Guthrie for a (mostly) light-hearted look at how what trustees do - and sometimes don't do - impacts their library directors and vice versa. Cassie will help provide a mirror with which trustees and library directors can view themselves and their actions, and a lens through which they can view their interactions with one another. This program will help strengthen the leadership skills of trustees and library directors and will help foster relationships. This popular and highly successful presentation will help improve communication, facilitate library directives, and it will help build a stronger foundation from which the library can operate more smoothly and more successfully.
Presenter: Cassie Guthrie is Library Director at the Greece Public Library in Rochester where she is privileged to work with 50 staff, 7 trustees and an active Friends group to deliver community-based library service to the towns 96,000 residents. She previously served as Executive Director of the Pioneer Library System in Canandaigua where she provided consultation and training to trustees of small and rural libraries.
