Holly Naylor of Brighton Township has been appointed to an opening on the Cromaine District Library’s Board of Trustees created by the retirement of Paul Black on June 21.
Interviews were held and the board voted at its July 26 meeting to appoint Naylor to the seat. A lifelong passionate reader, Naylor feels Cromaine does a great job of providing a variety of interesting activities and outreach to engage the community.
She hopes to bring to the board her experience in nonprofit fundraising and strategic planning, further using her master’s in public administration. She said she is pleased to join the board at this stage of the new strategic plan and looks forward to bringing this community’s goals to fruition as a representative of and to the community at large.
Cecilia Ann Marlow, Library Director, said one of Naylor’s responses to the trustees’ interview questions clearly indicated her experience in nonprofit board roles.
“Because of her experience and education, Holly clearly understands the board’s role of oversight of the director, and the difference between that and the job of the staff to carry out day-to-day operations,” Marlow said.
Naylor’s term runs through Dec. 31, 2018. She said she plans to file to run for the two-year remainder of Black’s term on the November 2018 ballot. An additional opening for a four-year term on the Library’s Board of Trustees will be on the November 2018 ballot as well. Interested candidates are welcome to contact the Library Director to discuss requirements and procedures to be on the ballot as well.
