Board Meetings

Co-op members are invited to address the board at the beginning of board meetings. If you wish to address the board, please send one week’s prior notice to the Executive Director’s office (office@bc.libraries.coop). In the interests of efficiency, we ask for a limit of 15 minutes per member delegation, though further discussion and conversation may follow.
