Over the past two weeks, IFLA has organised a series of round tables, designed to deepen the conversation with our Members and volunteers about the future of our Federation. The feedback we have received will help the Governing Board improve and develop proposals to be delivered at our General Assembly on 5 November.
We are at the mid-point of our series of virtual round tables on our Governance Review, and have already received great feedback and useful questions. The next week will offer further opportunities to share your ideas – we encourage Members and volunteers to join us!
It’s a time of transformation in IFLA! With our new strategy, launched last year, we want to ensure we have the best possible structures for delivery.
Almost a year ago, IFLA’s Governance Review began. Now, after two surveys, numerous inputs by email and letter, and countless conversations, we have come to a key moment in our efforts to give IFLA structures that match the ambition of our Strategy.
Broad agreement with the directions of the Governance Review Draft Proposal is a key result of the survey.
IFLA's General Assembly 2020 will take place on 5 November 2020, in The Hague, The Netherlands. IFLA's Secretary General Gerald Leitner explains more.
IFLA's survey of its Members and volunteers, seeking views on the first draft proposals on our new governance structure has closed, with over 700 responses, as well as suggestions via email. Your contributions will help the Governing Board improve the plans further, before a series of open virtual round tables in August.
IFLA Members and volunteers around the world are invited to share their views on the first draft of our governance review proposals through our survey by 14 July. Your input will shape the future of IFLA.
Following almost a year of discussions involving IFLA’s Governing Board, members and volunteers, this document sets out a draft proposal for a new governance structure as the basis of a more inclusive, transparent and effective IFLA. We are again calling on IFLA’s members and volunteers to contribute their ideas and insights, to come to the best possible governance framework for the global library field.
