Proposed Motion
That Mr. Kevin Dodds be recognized for his years of service to the Yellowhead Regional Library with a Certificate of Recognition for his contribution to the community.

Background/Analysis
Kevin Dodds began at Yellowhead Regional Library (YRL) in September 1989 as a Library Consultant. In 1996 he was promoted to the Head of Consultative Services and then Manager of Public Services in 2000. He took on the additional responsibility of Assistant Director in 2004 and was appointed Director in 2008, the position he held until his retirement in December 2018.
 
As Director, Kevin built up YRL’s financial reserves for the future, negotiated a new agreement with all municipal and school division members, conducted a governance review that saw significant changes to the board structure and increased communication with stakeholders, oversaw the implementation of a new integrated library software system and other related technologies, and conducted a service review that introduced many additional, flexible services available to members of the public and school library patrons.
