Council

Charge

The Alliance is governed by a Council of member library deans and directors, with leadership and fiduciary responsibility vested in a Board of Directors drawn from and elected by Council. Council approves the budget and all strategic initiatives. Each member institution appoints a library director to Council and each Council member has one vote.

Background

Council is our longest-standing group, dating back to a first meeting on September 27, 1993. As the consortium grew, Council approved formation of an Executive Committee in 1997 and a Board upon incorporation in 2003. In many ways Council’s collegial traditions are unchanged.
