Each year, a significant number of IFLA Professional Units organise a Satellite Meeting. A Satellite Meeting allows an IFLA Professional

Unit to devote more time to a specific topic than is available during the IFLA World Library and Information Congress.


Over the past two to three years IFLA has received a number of requests for (financial) support and guidance for the organization of Satellite Meetings.

This, together with the fact that IFLA is required to formalise any agreements that IFLA enters into, has led the Professional Committee to develop Guidelines for Satellite Meetings.

They can also be found under the Officers Corner, rules and procedures.


Full details and explanation of the changes they imply will be explained shortly through the Prof Speak blog.
