About the Training

Recruiting, orienting, and retaining active and informed SILC members are not easy tasks, but there are proven strategies that can strengthen your approaches to these activities. In this training, we explore some of these strategies as practiced by two SILCs that have developed effective processes which result in more committed and engaged Council members.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the training, participants will have knowledge and resources which will enable them to:

  • Describe effective strategies to strengthen SILC member recruitment processes that will result in committed, highly engaged council members, while reducing turnover.
  • Identify the elements of highly effective member orientation sessions that result in greater knowledge of the IL field and a higher comfort level among members as they begin their new roles.
  • Utilize effective "best practice" tools and techniques for improving the ongoing support and development of SILC members.
