The Ridgefield Library Association is seeking applications from local residents for membership on its board of directors. Self-nominations are encouraged. Three-year terms begin on July 1.
The library board is a working board, with up to 16 members who are responsible for the organization’s fiduciary oversight, strategic planning and policy-setting. Board members take an active role in helping the library raise the nearly 30% of its annual operating budget that comes through fund raising, donations and gifts.
The board makes it a priority to have broad and balanced representation of ages, gender, skill sets and experience in the community. Examples of particular skills in demand for new members include, but are not limited to, development, finance, legal, facilities management, human resources, marketing or technology.
Completed applications must be received by March 31 for consideration. For more information on the roles and responsibilities of library board members, and to apply, contact Library Director Brenda McKinley at BJMcKinley@ridgefieldlibrary.org.
