Opportunities to Engage

IFLA Elections 2021

Welcome to IFLA’s nominations and elections for 2021! From here, you can find out about the different positions and opportunities to engage across our Federation.

These run from Professional Section Standing Committees focused on key areas of library practice, to Advisory Committees on cross-cutting issues such as copyright, our new Regional Division Committees, and of course our Governing Board.

If you want to make a contribution to the global library field through taking on a volunteer role – or by nominating someone to do so – you can explore the possibilities using the menu on this page.

By standing, or nominating, you are helping to bring IFLA’s new governance structures to life. These are the result of our Governance Review, which has worked to make our federation more inclusive, effective, and transparent.

We can only be successful if we are drawing on the full diversity of our field. We therefore welcome and encourage candidacies and nominations from people from all parts of the world, all career stages, all backgrounds, and all types of expertise and experience.

We look forward to receiving your nominations and candidacies.

We are IFLA!

Kind regards,

Gerald Leitner
Secretary General
