Library Trustees Association of NYS Board of Directors to present the following three awards:
Winter 2011 issue of Trustee
In an effort to more fully honor outstanding service given by various individuals or groups to the library community throughout New York State, LTA Board of Directors will present two additional awards to be given annually in addition to the Distinguished Service Award and the Velma K. Moore Award:
Distinguished Service Award
This award, which has been presented twice in the past will be conferred to an individual or group of people for noteworthy achievement, as evidenced by substantial activities or exceptional service to the library community. Recipient(s) will be nominated and selected on a state-wide basis by the LTA Board of Directors and the award will be presented at the annual Trustee Institute.
Outstanding Trustee Award
This award will be presented to a trustee who has shown a true understanding of his/her role as a trustee and has demonstrated unusual dedication and expertise in their role as a trustee. The award will be presented to either a currently-serving system trustee or local library trustee and nominations will be solicited from Presidents of Boards and Library systems in the geographic area in which the Trustee Institute is held each year. The recipient(s) will then be selected by the LTA Board and the award will be presented to the recipient from that geographic area at the annual Trustee Institute.
Outstanding Friends Award
This award will be presented to an individual in a FRIENDS group who has given extraordinary service as a FRIEND and to recognize his/her contribution in helping to make our libraries a vibrant, active, and essential force in our communities. Nominations will be sought from the Presidents of local and system FRIENDS organizations in the geographic area in which the Trustee Institute is held each year. The recipient(s) will then be selected by the LTA Board and the award will be presented to the recipient(s) from that geographic area at the annual Trustee Institute.
More information about submitting nominations will be sent in February of each year to the appropriate individuals in the systems in which the Trustee Institute will be held that year. For 2011, this will be the Upper Hudson Library System. We encourage you to begin considering now who you would like to nominate for these awards!
