Delete library director and board member as officers. The State Library recommends against having trustees or library administrators serving on Friends boards due to the need to maintain a line of separation between library governance and volunteer supporters. The roles can bleed over and be perceived as a conflict of interest, especially where budget matters are concerned.

It is fine for a library staff member, such as the branch manager, to serve ex officio. This provides a liaison between the groups and is always recommended.
