A strength of LIANZA is the “three P’s team” leading our association. We are seeking a new President-elect to join Rachel Esson and Anahera Morehu on this team for a three-year presidential term. The three Presidents work closely together and this role provides many leadership opportunities – representing LIANZA at hui, forums and conferences, working alongside national and international stakeholders, leading the Council and championing our partnership with Te Rōpū Whakahau. You can check out who has previously lead LIANZA here.
LIANZA Council is made up of regional councillors elected from each of our six regions. We are calling for nominations for regional councillors in three LIANZA regions – Te Whakakitenga aa Kaimai, Ikaroa and Otago-Southland. It is an exciting time to be involved in the strategic governance of your professional association as we look to the future of LIANZA. If you are already involved in a LIANZA region or if you are looking for a new challenge and want to make a significant contribution to the library and information sector at the national level, then consider nomination to LIANZA Council.
