This afternoon, the board of trustees voted to offer our current interim director Michael Crose the position on an ongoing basis. We’re obviously going to negotiate with Mike, but the motion that carried unanimously (trustee Tom Schaeffer was unavailable), also included the idea of the creation of a leadership program within Timberland.
The details of that program are obviously to be determined, but in my mind, the point would be to foster leadership within our organization.
This is just a quick note, we also had a great discussion regarding use of social media by trustees, which I’ll recount later. We also voted to move forward with settling an unfair labor practice by Timberland Library.
