Reminder to register to attend February WLA Legislative Day
a. Topics for AC to address this year.
i. Marathon County Public Library – The Marathon County Public Library Task Force recommended that the Marathon County Library join SCLS. The recommendation will go to the full board for a vote. If the vote is yes, the County of Marathon Board of Supervisors will vote. If this all goes through, everything has to be official by June 2021 to join. If that happens, SCLS will come up with a revised system plan and the AC will need to review the governance structure and possibly readjust the cluster representatives. A work group may need to be formed to work it out.
ii. Cost Formula Work Group – The recommendation is to not convene.
b. 2021 All Directors meetings: March- virtual; May – WAU; July - ROM; November - DFT
i. July afternoon ideas: the morning is dedicated to voting, the afternoon is typically a networking event. The AC is responsible for implementing the afternoon event.
ii. November CE suggestions: If anyone has ideas, please contact M. Van Pelt soon.
c. Annual Cluster Representative Training & Refresher: M. Van Pelt reviewed the cluster representative job description and meeting protocols.
