Operations Committee

The Operations Committee meets monthly and works with the Program Coordinator to monitor and oversee the work of the working groups. The OC works closely with the Program Coordinator on guiding the strategic direction of the Partnership, advises the Executive Committee on that direction, prepares grant proposals, timelines and business model plans, and may recommend to the Executive Committee the appointment of working groups. The OC consists of individuals with operational shared print roles (e.g. program managers) and those with leadership roles (e.g. program/consortial directors) at Partnership Member Programs and their Participating Libraries.

The operations committee consists of no more than 9 members, ideally limited to 1 representative per member program, including:

  • Representative to the Executive Committee (1)
  • Representatives from each of the three working groups (3)
  • Members-at-large (up to 5)
