Meet the Governance Board

Scope of work:

The Governance Board provides oversight and consultation on all aspects of CARLI’s services, programs, and development, except for those activities reserved for the member institutions. The Governance Board sets strategic direction, reviews and approves the detail and the total of the organizational budget each year, advises and gives recommendation on the hiring and evaluation of the CARLI Senior Director, and provides advice and input to the University of Illinois in matters relating to the Consortium.

Member election/appointment and terms:

The Governance Board consists of twelve voting members:

  • Elected members: Nine voting members are elected by the Governing member institutions: three from public universities; three from private colleges, universities, and research libraries; and three from public community colleges. Members are elected for a 3-year term. A voting member must be the director of a Governing member’s library.
  • Appointed members: Three voting members are appointed annually by the elected members of the Governance Board: one from public universities; one from private colleges, universities, and research libraries; and one from public community colleges. Members are appointed for a one-year term.

Ex officio members of the Governance Board include the CARLI Senior Director and a representative from the Illinois State Library. Neither of these ex officio members will have voting privileges.

Expected reporting frequency:

The Governance Board will meet quarterly during each fiscal year (July 1–June 30). The agenda for the meeting will be posted to the CARLI web site in advance and minutes of each meeting will be posted to the CARLI web site no later than 30 days after each meeting.

The Governance Board will arrange and preside at an annual meeting, open to staff of all member libraries and at an annual assembly of the directors of all member libraries or their designees.
