One of TRLN’s three governing bodies, the Governing Board holds the ultimate authority of TRLN. The Governing Board is responsible for retaining qualified executive leadership for TRLN, establishing policy, approving operating budgets, overseeing assets, and setting strategic directions. Membership consists of the Provosts of the member institutions, the University Librarian from each member institution, and the TRLN Executive Director, ex officio. The Governing Board meets at least annually, at such time and place as the chairperson of the Board may determine, given reasonable written notice of time and place to the members of the board.
