2018 FLLS Board of Trustees Nominations Sought

There are three open seats on the FLLS Board of Trustees to be voted on at the FLLS Annual Meeting on October 13th; one in Cayuga County, one in Tioga County and one at-large trustee.  Nominations are welcome for any adult residing in Cayuga, Tioga, or all-five Counties to fill the respective seat available for each county.  The nominee does not need to be a trustee on a library board.  Nominations of individuals with diverse personal and professional backgrounds are welcome and encouraged.  Self-nominations are also welcome.

The terms of the trustees Patricia Schaffer from Tioga County, and Gregg Kiehl, at-large trustee, will expire at the end of 2017. Both of these trustees are eligible to run for a second term and have expressed interest in running again.  Sue Ahner from Cayuga County is choosing to leave her board position at the end of 2017.
