Members have expressed a high interest in the 2023-2025 IFLA elections and the candidates that have been nominated. At its meeting in February 2023, the Governing Board agreed to ask candidates for the major roles of President-elect, Treasurer and Governing Board member at large to provide a brief video presentation in addition to their motivation statement.

To provide a standard approach, candidates for President-elect were asked to briefly introduce themselves and speak to the following questions:

  • What experience, skills and which leadership style do you bring to the complex role of IFLA President?
  • As President, how will you engage with members, volunteers and stakeholders?
  • As President, outline how you would go about being an ambassador for IFLA in different regions of the world and in the wider public fora?
