Governance and Board of Directors

The Tampa Bay Library Consortium is administered by an executive director and is governed by the 13-member TBLC Board of Directors. The board is composed of representatives from the TBLC membership as follows: two representing academic libraries, two representing public libraries, two representing special/school libraries and three at-large. An executive board, made up of president, vice-president/president elect, treasurer, secretary and immediate past-president, oversees the activities of the board.

The entire membership of the consortium participates in governance and elects the Board and Officers at the annual TBLC Membership Meeting held in November. Directors serve on the board for a term of three years and terms begin in January. TBLC’s Bylaws were revised in 2008 and guide the organization.

Board of directors meetings are held bimonthly on the second Friday from 1 to 4:30 p.m.

Members are invited to attend!

Bylaws revised and adopted in 2016 guide the consortium.
