Library stakeholders: The committee will include     one library staff member and one library board member.

Community stakeholders: Start by identifying community decision makers. Who in your community can influence elected officials? Who are the leaders of the various groups and organizations that combine to make up the fabric of your community?
·        You may also want to identify people with special skills. The skills that you want to have available on your committee will vary depending on local circumstances.
·        The third thing to remember is that you want the committee to look like your community. Therefore, you are looking for representatives of the various demographic and socioeconomic groups in your community. You will also want people who live in all parts of your service area represented.
