Prepping for Accreditation: Board-Related Standards

Oct 26, 2021, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

If your library is in the next accreditation cycle, then February 2022 is the time to submit your accreditation application.  And if you’d like ample time to discuss the accreditation process and learn more about what’s required—well in advance of the deadline—then join our “Prepping For Accreditation” series.

District Consultants will facilitate these information sessions, focusing on specific standards like strategic planning, policies, board education, and more.  We’ll have material prepared, but these sessions are largely designed for conversation and Q&A, in a format similar to District Office Hours.

While intended for libraries in the next accreditation cycle (February 2022) these sessions will also be valuable for all other libraries wanting to increase their Tier status and move from Tier 0-1-2-3.  This series will be equally helpful for newly hired directors, certainly any library board members are welcome to attend.

Programs will occur on the fourth Tuesday each month through January 2022, and there are two sessions planned for January to put more time between the last session and the February 28 filing deadline.

No preregistration necessary; contact your District Consultant for a link to the Zoom room. Because these are consulting sessions, not intended as workshops, CE credit will not be awarded.
