On three recent days, Library Board Members and Directors from throughout the NEKLS region participated in training sessions, “Policies for Results”, presented by Bonnie McKewon, consultant and trainer from the State Library of Iowa.

This training was offered as one way for Trustees to complete the continuing education (CE) requirement of the NEKLS Accreditation Standards.

Here are some resources from the day:

If you attended the training

Thank you for taking the time to further your learning as a library Trustee! Your attendance has been registered to count towards your library’s CE requirement.

If you did not attend training

Your board can use “Policies for Results” to satisfy its 2018 CE requirement by watching a video recording of Bonnie’s presentation. The video is currently being edited. When it is available, we will send information to public library directors.

Boards may also choose an alternate form of training. For more information on completing the education requirement, see the NEKLS Trustee Information web page.
