D. Director’s Annual Evaluation A packet of information pertaining to the process of evaluating the director was distributed to committee members by Wicihowski. This packet included a copy of the director’s current job description.
Committee members discussed the pros and cons of using the same evaluation form that was used by the board last year. Discussion ensued. It was noted that there were distinct benefits to using the same form each year. Doing so allows the board to measure the director’s professional growth from year to year. Committee members agreed to use last year’s form, but noted that it would be necessary to make some modifications to it.
There was a consensus to include input from the library’s supervisors in this year’s evaluation. Each library supervisor will be asked to participate in a confidential interview with one member of the committee regarding the director’s evaluation.
Committee members agreed that they would request a list of professional goals for next year from the director.
E. Next Meeting The committee agreed to meet at 4:30 p.m. on October 24, 2013.
F. Adjournment Motion to adjourn the meeting 5:35 p.m. by Crawmer and seconded by Nichols. Motion carried.
