IFLA Newsletter, December 2022: IFLA Elections 🗳️
15 December 2022
The message below accompanies the December 2022 edition of the IFLA Newsletter.
IFLA Newsletter, Vol. 2, No. 12
Welcome to the December IFLA Newsletter!
Every other year, hundreds of volunteer positions across our Federation open up for passionate, innovative, open-minded people from all over our field to fill.
2023 will be just such a year, and we are hard at work to prepare to launch our nominations and elections process. This is an important moment for our members to exercise a key benefit – to put forward candidates who can both bring valuable energy and experience to the work of one of our dozens of committees, and who can share what they learn back with their own networks.
IFLA as a whole of course relies on our members doing just this, and for a wide and diverse range of candidates to be ready to stand, making our work more global, more representative, and more effective.
This edition of the IFLA newsletter is therefore focused on these upcoming elections. It shares insights from our Professional and Regional Council Chairs, and updates on how the process is being run. There’s also an update from our latest Governing Board meeting, news about our advocacy, professional and regional activities, and a look ahead to next year’s WLIC!
