The Library Trustees Association of New York State is in a period of transition. We have a new director, a new website, and a bunch of board members coming and going. In this period of change, we are looking for feedback from you, the membership, about another possible change. The discussion we are having centers around how to offer trustees the best possible services we can provide.

In these discussions, one proposal that has been entertained is some sort of partnership with the New York Library Association. There are different degrees of affiliation that we would like your input on. All options would include the board maintaining complete control over its activities, board composition, bylaws, and the content of its communications. In no option would the LTA cease cooperating and working with NYLA to further the interests of the library community

The following options are summaries of the ones NYLA has presented to us. Please read the following and give a score on a scale of 1 to 10 as to how strongly you feel your LTA should pursue that option, with 1 being not at all and 10 being absolutely, definitely the way to go.
