Discussion and Suggestions

There were concerns about the winter retreat format, both in terms of the variety of topics to be discussed and the lack of planning time.
JoAnn Jacoby has asked me to meet with her about New Service Model needs for staff training and development.  Besides the change workshops, we've talked about effective meeting training.  Also it would be helpful to think about strategies for making the Team Leaders aware of the possibility of incorporating staff training into their Team's work and recommendations.  One model for doing this is Special Collections, which has drafted a document that outline expectations, but also guides people to the resources available and how to engage them  Another approach would be for me to go to the next team Leader meeting.  

3. Although Beth was thinking early in the week, the team recommended that Graduate Assistant Orientation and Training for Spring be held on the Friday that most folks are going to ALA.  Beth will see if anyone is available to present.
