Winter 2015 issue of Trustee
Plan now to attend the 2015 Trustee Institute being held in Syracuse, New York this year. Our theme for 2015 is Crucial Connections. We are finalizing our plans, but the tentative schedule is outlined below. The Institute will be held at the DoubleTree Inn at exit 35 of the New York State Thruway.
Friday afternoon includes registration and a workshop, followed by a cocktail networking hour that will include displays and vendor tables. Dinner will follow. Saturday will be a busy day starting with continental breakfast and opening remarks. LTA members have asked to be able to fit more workshops into their plans. To meet that request, we’ll offer three different workshops during the morning. Sessions will repeat so you can learn about more than one topic. The format will vary to include panel discussions as well as formal presentations. Saturday will also include a large group session with keynote speaker.
Regional awards for Outstanding Trustee and Outstanding Friend will be presented at Friday evening’s dinner and our Velma K. Moore aware will be presented at Saturday’s luncheon. Vendors and displays will be available on Saturday. A technology lab will be available on both days so bring your device or get your questions answered using the technology available at the lab.
Tentative workshop topics will include:
• Understanding the Audit Process: How to Prepare for and Complete a State Audit
• How Best to Connect with Elected Officials
• How to Connect with Our Community
• Legal Issues: What Do Trustees Need To Know
• Keynote Speaker: Expecting More From Libraries
Start and end times for both days will be: 4 pm to 9 pm on Friday, 5-1-15 and 9 am to 3 pm on Saturday, 5-2-15. A mailing with the finalized itinerary will be out soon. Updates will also be available on our website and through our monthly e-mail blast. Until then, please mark May 1 and 2, 2015 on your calendar and plan on attending the 2015 LTA Trustee Institute: Crucial Connections. You won’t want to miss this event.
