Boardroom Series 2023 | Policy Watch: Policies Lost and Found (Part 2) (Live Webinar)

Feb 28, 2023, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

The Boardroom Series begins a new year with a continued discussion of some policy topics not commonly addressed. We started this topic last November in discussing the Library Board’s role in disaster planning. This month, State Library consultants Bonnie McKewon and Samantha Bouwers continue that conversation by pointing to policy issues surrounding library programming, social media, and more. We’ll also cover tips to clarify roles among the library support team (The Board, Director, Staff, and City), and assist with writing by highlighting an approach to policy development known as “The 4 Parts of a Policy.

About the Boardroom Series: In these sessions, we aim to inform and encourage Iowa library trustees. We present best practices and current trends in library board service. Participation in these webinars helps satisfy Standard #8: “All members of the library board of trustees participate in a variety of board development training each year”
