BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEMBER
A meaningful public service commitment for the community oriented individual
General Information: There are seven members serving on the PPLD Board. The term of office is five years; vacancies are filled for the remainder of the unexpired term. Regardless of the length of the term, in order to encourage greater participation on the Board from the community, Board members may serve for no more than two terms. One or two trustee terms expire annually. This ensures continuity, yet allows for the regular introduction of new Board members.
Board members are appointed jointly by the Colorado Springs City Council and the El Paso County Commissioners.The Colorado Library Law addresses the composition of Boards in CRS 24-90-108. It specifically defines the power and duties of library boards in CRS 24-90-109. The Board for a library district is considered a governing, as opposed to an advisory Board, and responsibilities, as defined by both law and practice, are outlined below.
