Trustee Handbook Book Club: Policies & Risk Management

Registration link: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Ji0sYwV9TxiHeuWmJq8v8w 

Join co-authors of the Handbook for Library Trustees of New York State Jerry Nichols and Rebekkah Smith Aldrich for this fun and informative series! Each month trustees are encouraged to read a chapter of the Trustee Handbook and send in questions that the authors will address.

Before the event:

1. Please read the Risk Management & Library Policies chapters before this session.

2. Thoughts to consider before the program:

Does the board have a strategy to meet the minimum standard requirement to review and update all policies at least once every five years or earlier if required by law?

Do all library policies that deal with the public have a process by which the board can respond to public comments or complaints?

Do all library policies have the date of the board’s initial approval and the date of revisions noted in the footer of the document?

When establishing a new policy, does the board consider how the policy would contribute to the accomplishment of the library’s goals and objectives?

When reviewing a policy, does the board ensure the policy is not only legally sound but in the best interest of the community at large, devoid of politics, prejudice, or favoritism?
