Committees & Special Interest Groups
Committees and Special Interest Groups
CLRC members can get involved in governance of the organization through CLRC’s variety of Standing and Ad Hoc Committees and Special Interest Groups. Members of committees and interest groups come from all types of libraries and cultural heritage organizations in the region and reflect the diversity of the CLRC membership.
Standing Committees are those that are necessary for carrying out the Council’s regular activities. These are decision-making groups that set policies and guide the direction of the Council. They are provided for by the Central NY Library Resources Council Trustees’ Bylaws, as amended 12/12/2013. Members are appointed to committees based on their experience with and interest in the areas relevant to the committee and the constituency represented by the appointee. Composition of the standing committees should reflect the membership of the Council. Committee membership terms are 5 years with a limit of 2 consecutive full terms. The term for a Committee Chair is 2 years, with a limit of two consecutive full terms. The President of the Board of Trustees and the Executive Director are ex-officio members of all Standing Committees.

Ad Hoc committees are formed as necessary to carry on the work of the Council. They help plan specific projects and events and their meeting schedules often revolve around those events. These are working groups and membership is based on an individual’s interest in the work of the committee. Like Standing Committees, the Ad Hoc Committees and Task Forces are ideally representative of the Council’s diverse membership.

CLRC’s Special Interest Groups provide a forum for members with common interests to meet and discuss relevant topics. Any member can start a special interest group and any member can join a group. CLRC will provide meeting space and assist with logistical arrangements and publicity. Special interest groups may also plan programs or workshops with financial support from CLRC. They often make suggestions and recommendations for programming and services. CLRC staff are available to facilitate meetings of special interest groups, or the groups may choose to run their own meetings.
