Reports



The Executive Board consists of the Wyoming Library Association’s elected officers, ALA Councilor, MPLA Representative, a representative appointed by the leaders of the interest groups, and two Leadership Coordinators. Ex officio members include the conference committee chair, legislative committee chair, communications advisor, executive secretary, and state librarian.

The board coordinates, reviews, and directs the operation of the association and develops its annual budget. Board members must be WLA members. Meetings are held at least twice each year and are open to all WLA members unless the board is in executive session, generally to discuss legal matters, property matters, or personnel matters such as appointments and salaries. Ex officio members do not attend executive sessions.

Written notice of all board meetings, including the date, time, and place, may be sent by mail, email, or fax and are posted here.

Meetings are normally held monthly on the second Tuesday from 4-5 p.m. on Zoom. Contact Jeff Collins for login information. Find this month's documents here.
