IFLA is holding extraordinary elections in 2022 for the positions of President-elect and Treasurer. Successful candidates will serve a term until the IFLA General Assembly 2023.

The elections follow the resignation of IFLA’s previous President-elect and Treasurer, and take place in line with the provisions of IFLA’s Statutes.

The President-elect has an essential leadership role, working with the IFLA President to provide inspiration and guidance to the Federation as a whole. Once their term as President-elect is complete, they will become IFLA President 2023-25.

The Treasurer will lead efforts to ensure the financial sustainability of our Federation, supporting our ability to support the field into the long term.
