January 2000 issue of Trustee
Mark your calendars. Plan to be in Rochester, NY, Friday, May 5 and Saturday, May 6, 2000 for the NYSALB 2000 Trustee Institute.
Friday, May 5
Friday evening dinner participants will have the opportunity to network with trustees from libraries of all sizes. Those who attended last year's institute were so enthusiastic about this part of our program that it is "back by popular demand." Share your success stories. Learn the way others deal with library problems, programs and activities.
Saturday, May 6

- 9:00 a.m.- Richard Panz, Director, Monroe County Library System, will discuss How Your Library System Can Help Your Library.
- Concurrently, Assemblywoman Naomi C. Matusow, Chair, Assembly Committee on Libraries and Education Technology will present How To Make Your Voice Heard.
