1. Establishing a regular meeting day.

After consulting calendars the group decided that regular meeting dates will fall on the afternoons of every 2nd Tuesday of the month. Teleconferencing arrangements will be established at Dana, Smith, and Robeson as needed. Meetings will be held on a regular basis but also only held as needed.

2. Review Training Opportunities

The group shared findings from canvassing administration regarding training needs. The ideas presented included the following:

Several of the above were repeatedly mentioned, and nearly all are translatable to needs system-wide. The group noted that individuals sometimes respond more positively to in person training and that different learning modalities need to be accommodated. It was noted that Library Link NJ has a series of programs, including cultural sensitivity, which we may use for our needs via grant funding.

3. Discussion of new projects for 2015-2016

In terms of goal setting, there are three recurring and ongoing themes requiring attention:

General discussion

The updates to the website calendar are compartmentalized by assigning committee members to specific event hosting organizations. As the membership of this group has recently changed we need to review what organizations would potentially become untracked. Rebecca Sloat volunteered to investigate via the group's Sakai portal and communicate to the group. She will also take over in passing on the calendar and other website updates to Sam McDonald.

Respectfully submitted,
Darryl Voorhees
