WANTED: Minute Taker for Library Board of Trustees
Meetings are every 2nd Tuesday from 10:30 am to 1 pm

The Plaistow Public Library is seeking a qualified individual to fill the position of minute taker for the monthly meetings of the Board of Trustees.

The Board of Trustees meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 10:30 AM with additional meetings periodically. The minutes are an important component of the public record process and serve as a permanent record of what transpires at the Board of Trustees meeting. The Minute Taker will summarize and compile notes from the meetings and submit draft minutes in typed format within five business days to the Board of Trustees in accordance with statutory requirements.

Minutes must include any specific actions or votes taken by the Board of Trustees, and any action items to be performed by the relevant staff must be disseminated soon after the meeting's conclusion. Minutes must be accurate and thorough as they can be subpoenaed by any court of law. The Minute Taker should be familiar with the NH RSA Right-to-Know law that governs minute taking, distribution and filing.

There is a stipend of $150 per meeting and transcription.

Applications accepted immediately until the position is filled.

Prior minute taking experience strongly preferred. Click HERE for a full job description.

Submit cover letter and resume along with a copy of minutes you have taken, or other writing sample, to the Plaistow Public Library Board of Trustees, 85 Main St., Plaistow, NH 03865, or email to the Board of Trustees at
