Trustee Bootcamp
Dr. Tanya Pollard, Alberta Library Trustees Association

Being a trustee can be a daunting task! There is so much to learn, know and do. This session will provide you with the tools and resources needed to be an effective, informed trustee.

We will explore topics such as; effective board meetings, board-director relationships, strategic planning and advocacy. ALTA has been working on curating a list of resources for human resource issues and problem solving and this session will show you where to go to find effective solutions for your trustee related issues. We will save some time to have some group discussion and Q&A. Plan to attend prepared for a mental workout! Bring your pens and paper, take lots of notes and leave being a fit and prepared trustee.
