Represent CJCLS in the International Federation of Library Associations & Institutions (IFLA)!

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) serves as the voice of libraries in the international community and hosts the World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) each August. ACRL invites applicants to serve as ALA representatives to IFLA standing committees for the 2017– 2021 term. There is an expectation of travel, but some travel grants may be possible.

If interested, please submit the following materials to Elizabeth Bowman by email at bowmane@sbcc.edu by May 6th.

    • Completed “Request to be Nominated to IFLA” application form: http://www.ala.org/acrl/resources/forms.
    • A resume reflecting expertise in field of the section applied for.
    • Affirmation that the person can fulfill the working language and travel requirements.

ACRL sections review the IFLA representative applications and make recommendations to the ACRL Leadership Recruitment and Nominations Committee (LRNC). The LRNC will review applications at the 2016 ALA Annual Conference in Orlando. The LRNC then submits its recommendations to the ACRL Board for consideration at the 2016 Fall Executive Committee Meeting. In turn, the ACRL Board submits the approved candidates for nomination to the ALA International Relations Committee in November, 2016.

The complete ACRL IFLA announcement is available on ALA Connect at http://connect.ala.org/node/251171.
