IFLA Announces New Secretary General

Barbara Lison, IFLA’s president, wrote a letter that says, in part:

As President of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions, I am honoured and proud to announce the IFLA Governing Board’s unanimous decision to appoint Sharon Memis as the new IFLA Secretary General.

After a turbulent and challenging time, in which the duties of the Secretary General were overshadowed by internal politics, IFLA set out to look for an expert in cultural diplomacy, business development, management and external relations. In Sharon Memis, we are convinced we have found the perfect combination. …

When I hand over the reigns as IFLA President this summer, I will do so in the knowledge that I am leaving the organisation in capable hands. Along with my successor Vicki McDonald, I know that with Sharon as Secretary General, IFLA will further be able to focus on what the organisation does best: strengthen the global voice of the library and information profession and work tirelessly to create literate, informed and participatory societies.

For more information, read the letter.
