On 7 September 2022, the IFLA Governing Board was notified by Adjoa Boateng in a brief email that she was resigning as Chair of the Professional Council. Her resignation has the consequence that she is no longer a member of the Governing Board.

The Governing Board is working on the necessary steps for her replacement. Jan Richards, Vice Chair of the Professional Council, will lead the meeting of the Professional Council scheduled for this week and attend Governing Board meetings in the interim.

The Governing Board thanks Adjoa for her participation in IFLA and her contribution over many years and wishes her all the best for the future.
