I have been spending my first couple of months at RAILS traveling around the system meeting with members. I have been talking about my hopes and dreams for RAILS in the future - that we will be the best Library System in the US. We will need your help to accomplish this, so I hope you will get involved in RAILS - here are some opportunities:
we will be launching strategic planning this year, hopefully this summer
nominations to the RAILS Board are currently open - you can find a link to the nomination and election information elsewhere on the website
please respond to our survey about the Member Update sessions - we hold these sessions bi-monthly and are looking for member input in how to make them more useful
our Board meets monthly and we welcome member attendance at the meetings
Please call or email me if you have any questions and I hope to see you soon at a RAILS event!
