1.3 Oath of Office for Trustees

Policy

The Traverse Area District Library Board of Trustees requires each trustee to be sworn in by repeating an Oath of Office to the incumbent at the beginning of each new term on the Library Board.

Text of the Oath of Office

“I do solemnly affirm that I will support the constitution of the United States, and the constitution of the State of Michigan, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of Member of the Board of Trustees of Traverse Area District Library, according to the best of my ability.”

Process

The Oath will be administered at the beginning of the first regular board meeting at which the Trustee begins a new term.  The Administrative Assistant or Board Secretary shall administer the Oath.    After being sworn in, the Trustee will sign the Oath which will then become part of the TADL Board archive.
