    Human Resources Working Group
    This group assists FLICC by developing positions and strategies to support professional personnel standards and recruitment initiatives. It promotes policies and actions that enhance the recognition and status of professional librarians in their evolving dynamic role for the 21st Century. The group interacts with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and the U.S. Department of Labor to update standards, to identify and surface changing core competencies, and to identify, track, and evaluate new avenues for professional development.
