ELECTION TO SOLS BOARD
To be eligible to run for election to SOLS Board and to vote in the election, one must be appointed to their Trustee Council by a library board. In cases where multiple trustees from a library participate in Trustee Council meetings, only the appointee may participate in the election. If you are unclear as to your status, please contact us.
