Approval of minutes from LAMP's 5/1/2019 meeting was moved by Allison and seconded by Julie. All in favor.


New Professionals Breakfast Summation
Went well - timeline it was offered may be reason for large attendance, early June allows for new graduates and held before the summer programming begins. Panel topics were different from last year and well received. Honest and frank discussion about the job market and the work life balance, and an overall emphasis on professionalism in the job search.

Director Survey for Programs & LAMP Program Proposal
Allison sent the survey to gather consensus around topics for LAMP workshops. She shared the results with the committee. Overwhelmingly the respondents wanted a workshop on building projects in advance of the construction bond act. We can put together a panel of speakers together to discuss the building projects they have been a part of (three current and former directors come to mind). Additionally, architects can be invited as well. Lina suggested a former politician from Cherry Hill that she heard speak at a workshop who was very engaging on the topic of buildings. Can also reach out to the Prince Georges County (MD) Facilities Manager who is also an engaging speaker. Perhaps a panel should include 1-2 directors, a financial person and an architect. Should this be an all day program or a half-day program? We should find a venue to host a full day program; Bergen Community College would be desirable (possibly 9/6, 9/11 or 9/12). If BCC not available, reach out to another college or a hospital conference room. Three 2-hour chunks would be good. Who would attend? Very experienced, less experienced? Both? Dependent on overall sessions being offered.

Salary Survey
Form will required that be at least one position entered in addition to the director position. Mike mentioned he has a list of requested changes from previous meetings and will work on those. Biggest change will be allowing for PTO in addition/instead of vacation, sick, personal time. A link to Civil Service title descriptions will be added {info pop-ups or link in section descriptions}. We will add an additional two lines for library budget info. We feel that the template has been overhauled to the point where little change is needed. Mike will create a way to pull particular reports from the survey. The survey will ideally go out for completion during July with the deadline being August 1st.


Date and place of next meeting:
July 24th immediately following LAMP Breakfast (noon) in Glen Rock


The meeting adjourned at 1:32pm. All in favor.
