IHLS Member Survey - Deadline Friday

The Illinois Heartland Library System (IHLS) is currently undertaking a strategic planning process. We are gathering input from a broad range of IHLS member libraries. To that end, we are conducting a web-based survey to evaluate member library satisfaction with current services and identify future needs. Using the survey results, along with the results of focus group interviews conducted this March, the IHLS Board will meet this July to draft our next plan.

Deadline Tomorrow for Board Seat Nominations Survey

Tomorrow is the deadline to submit nominations for open seats on the Illinois Heartland Library System Board of Directors. The following positions on the board are up for election this year:

  • 1 Public Library Representative
  • 2 School Library Representatives
  • 2 Public Library Trustee Representatives

Individuals interested in running for one of the open seats should click this link to complete the nomination survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/W7C59X5

Only people interested in appearing on the election ballot should complete the survey. The Nominating Committee will consider all completed survey responses and will select candidates to appear on the ballot. The committee has several factors to consider in creating a balanced ballot in accordance with the IHLS bylaws. Completing the survey does not guarantee one’s appearance on the ballot.

We had a bit of a late start this year and have modified our schedule to ensure sufficient time to seek out and vet candidates for these important roles in IHLS. If you are interested in appearing on the election ballot please complete the survey by Friday, March 13 at midnight. The official ballot will be available and distributed on Friday, March 20.

Thank you for your consideration.

If you have questions or comments for the Nominating Committee, please feel free to contact us:

Thank you for your consideration.
