Outreach Proposal

The following proposal to establish the Outreach Committee was approved by the Evergreen Executive Oversight Board at its April 16, 2015 meeting:

  • This proposal is for the Evergreen Oversight Board to:
    1. establish a fund to be used for increasing the visibility of Evergreen in the larger library community;
    2. and form an Outreach Committee charged with organizing the outreach activities for which those funds will be used.
  • The Outreach Committee will comprise up to six members of the Evergreen community, at least one of whom should be a member of the Evergreen Oversight Board.
  • The EOB will be responsible for appointing volunteers to the committee.
  • The tasks of the committee will include, but not be limited to, establishing a presence at library conferences by renting and staffing space in the exhibit hall, organizing Evergreen users meetings, and/or encouraging presentations from Evergreen community members; issuing press releases on noteworthy happenings in the Evergreen community; and raising funds for Outreach activities.
  • Any activities that require travel among Evergreen community members are expected to be done by people already planning to travel to those events. The EOB will not reimburse for said travel. Volunteers staffing exhibit booths may be eligible for free registration that comes with renting the booth, but there is no guarantee that registration fees will be covered.
  • Any activities that require the expenditure of funds must be approved by the EOB.
  • The committee must provide regular reports to the EOB by writing to the mailing list.
  • The Outreach Committee will work on a trial basis through December 2016, at which time the EOB will evaluate the activities and effectiveness of the committee and determine if it is worthwhile to continue these activities.
