This year the Alberta Library Trustees’ Association (ALTA) is hosting a Symposium for Library Trustees on November 9th from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. This is a day-long workshop filled with engaging and informative sessions focused on non-profits boards and governance. The event provides networking opportunities as well as sessions on a wide variety of topics.
Ian McCormack will be joining ALTA to run a morning session to provide guidance, advice, expertise and resources that empower our trustees to practice good governance with confidence. As a strong library supporter and previous board member, Ian seeks to support trustees through a broad range of experience and insight.
Include a panel session with experienced trustees, managers, elected officials and library experts who will share their experience and knowledge as well as answer trustee questions.
Also included will be breakout coffee chats facilitated by fellow trustees and our panellists to provide a casual forum for trustees to network and discuss the business of being a trustee. Topics will include recruiting new board members, board ethics and more!
