Order to appoint two members to serve on the Falmouth Library Transition Committee.
ACTION: Council action is anticipated.
The purpose of a Transition Committee is to include a variety of interests and stakeholders to be fully involved in the assessment and visioning parts of the transition process, including the search for a new Director. Participants/members of the Transition Committee will likely include 3-5 current trustees, 2-3 former trustees, and representatives of the staff, the Friends, 2 appointees from the Town Council, and others with an interest in the Library. ¬†
We have attached a timeline and list of Committee duties.
The Transition Committee will be meeting once or twice a month, likely in the evening,¬†for roughly the next six months. This committee will report to the Board of Trustees. The first Committee meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, December 14, 2011, at 7 p.m.,¬†with a follow-up meeting likely the first week in January. As outlined in the attachments, there will also be a 4-5 hour meeting on a Friday or Saturday,¬†either the last week of January or the first week in February, where the "visioning" of the leadership goals for the library will take place.¬† The Director search task component of this process will start in late February or early March.¬†
