Who does what may be a clearer title for this chapter. All three of you must work together in order to succeed. Often each of you will be working on one component of the same project. Developing a good relationship with trustees and local government is one of the most important things you will have to do. It is also the hardest. Read on for clarification of your roles and for tips on working with each other. Before we start talking about you, the trustee, and local government, lets look at some of the things you should do during the first few days and the first month on the job.
Note: The Montana State Library has also developed a Trustee Handbook that covers the duties of a library board. Your library should have a copy, but if not, contact Montana State Library or go to :Trustee Manual.
