If previous governments (corporate history) didn’t do well, painstakingly and piece by piece, establish the art and discipline of doing it which may not be achieved overnight but may also result to smooth transition in the forthcoming years in terms of accountability and document preparation (corporate governance).

Corporate governance in librarians' professional organization 101 Corporate governance in librarians' professional organization 101 Document Transcript

  • Corporate governance in library professional organizations 101 Being Chief of the Library Organization 10th Part of A Series, Second Year 2013 October 15 By Roderick Baturi Ramos nows her corporate responsibility upon entering librarians’ professional organizations. Leading a library-based or librarians’ professional organization is likened to bringing its board members to the highlands not only for fun travel (competence) but for scholarship (character) and book donations (charity) as well. Travel advisories are important. When they fail to notice or overlook advisories, deliberately or not, is a joiner’s and/or an officer’s responsibility. How would they fail to notice when they are sent regularly and translated into many forms like e-mail message, text message to cell phones, regular meetings? An organization’s constitution and by-laws obliges each to recite verse by verse as a one- time act to internalize one’s roles, duties and functions during its turn-over and planning month. Have high regard for corporate business calendars and turn-over of corporate records namely minutes of meetings, financial report, registration & license, activity documentation, evaluation reports, photos and the like. The corporate secretary is honorable little president for having these corporate documents in her possession. If previous governments (corporate history) didn’t do well, painstakingly and piece by piece, establish the art and discipline of doing it which may not be achieved overnight but may also result to smooth transition in the forthcoming years in terms of accountability and document preparation (corporate governance). While in the process, others may not feel well about this and tedious to some but make sure to keep current set of minutes reflect what everyone debates, argues on and decisions arrived at and used including what anyone discovers. Avoid pre-judgments, and, just like any professional, be solid with your core – competence, character and charity. Be alarmed and stimulate transparency among board members, all the more, when there is an absence of an approved and official organization’s manual. Journeying to highlands may not be, at all times, safe, but also thrilling. Be inspired and with perseverance – remain looking at your primary corporate goals and/or directions. When problems get stirred and/or accusations appear, after a year or so, standstill with corporate records, e.g. minutes of board meetings, while others don’t and excuse themselves. Pray for those who may have been given the privilege to provide and recollect, published or not. If you can and be like the innovative St. John Baptist De La Salle, who met opposition, too, from authorities but succeeded. “De la Salle was a man of refined manners, a cultured mind, and great practical ability, in whom personal prosperity was balanced with kindness and affability.” (USLS) And to celebrate and live one’s core, competence, character and charity, six (6) mantras a librarian may utilize while you may create a personal seventh (7th) mantra to complete – one (1) per day for the whole week: Monday, I will think before I speak; Tuesday, To speak gently and politely and not rudely or harshly is my art of speaking; Wednesday, I love myself and I should injure no one; Thursday, I can conquer myself and be the greatest of all the conquerors; Friday, I am a man who knows how to avoid problems by being careful about what I say; and, Saturday, I have controlled thoughts, I have controlled words, I have controlled actions. Controlled thoughts, controlled words, controlled actions make me harmless and noble. Read more, Being Chief of the Library Organization SLIDESHARE K
