The LT is the decision-making authority in CIRTL as regards policies, using sociocratic processes, and except in such cases as when a policy needs to be decided by the Network as a whole or is delegated to a Standing Committee. The LT advises the Director on operational decisions such as revenue planning, program expenditures, initiatives, network procedures and practices, and implementation of CIRTL policies. (See also CIRTL Constitution & Bylaws.)
Regular duties include:
- Planning and attendance at monthly Administrative and Network meetings
- Providing substantive input to the planning of the twice yearly General meetings
- Reviewing CIRTL Member contributions once per year
- Implementing other procedures and practices as needed
- Providing regular reports on LT activities
The Leadership Team meets once a week for approximately one hour. Time outside of regular meetings is spent reviewing documents and materials relevant to the LT meetings and authoring and editing documents in preparation for or as follow up to CIRTL meetings. Outside of the weekly Leadership Team meeting, time commitment varies from week to week but averages several hours per month. Members of the Leadership Team may take on special tasks or initiatives which require additional time commitment.
Meets: Weekly, 1 hour
