Looking for a few good people

The Friends of the SaddleBrooke Libraries is a wonderful organization dedicated to keeping the SaddleBrooke Libraries funded so we can continue to enjoy the newest best sellers, favorite authors, audiobooks, DVDs, large print books and the popular Lecture Series as well as Meeting the Author luncheons. In order for this organization to continue we must rely on our hard working volunteers. As of 2014 there are two openings for Members at Large. This position is part of the Board of Directors and attends the monthly meetings of the board. The main function is to assist with any programs, projects or fundraisers as required by the committee chair. The Member at Large is usually responsible for the thank you luncheon that FSL hosts for library volunteers annually.

Because of the importance of the positions of president and vice president, we are announcing the opening of these positions as of 2015. With this extended lead time, it would be ideal to have someone shadow these two officers for a few months to become acquainted with the office functions.

The president presides at all meetings of the Board of Directors and Executive Committee and shall have such duties as may be prescribed by the board. The president shall serve as ex officio member of all committees with the exception of the Nominating Committee.

In the absence of the president, the vice president shall perform the duties of the president. The vice president shall be responsible for coordinating and overseeing the planning process. The vice president also prepares the board meeting agendas each month. The vice president shall chair the Nominating Committee. The vice president shall also have such other powers and duties as may be assigned by the board.

If you have any interest in any of these positions, please contact Barry Swartzberg, Vice President FSL at [email protected]. We thank you for your continued support of the Friends of the SaddleBrooke Libraries.
