Elections only happen once every two years so this is your chance to be nominated to be on a committee or group – there are more than 800 positions up for grabs! Find out more by reading the call for nominations announcement and the IFLA Election guide.
One of the benefits of LIANZA’s membership of IFLA is the possibility to nominate candidates for the many different volunteer groups IFLA has, from its governing board to its expert committees.
You might want to consider seeking nomination as a member of one of the 40+ IFLA Professional Section Standing Committees or self-nominate for an IFLA Special Interest Group.
LIANZA, as a member of IFLA, can nominate people for the following professional sections:
- Public Libraries
- Library Theory and Research
- Library Services to Multicultural Populations
- Management of Library Associations
- Indigenous Matters
Please advise LIANZA executive director Ana Pickering by email if you wish LIANZA to nominate you for one of the professional sections listed above firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in standing for another section committee, you could be nominated by another IFLA member in New Zealand – see the list below.
If you have any questions about the election process, please contact email@example.com.
Nominations close February 24, 2023.
