IFLA Governing Board Announces Leadership Changes

IFLA revealed the results of its latest Governing Board meeting, stating that the board “has released the Secretary General Gerald Leitner from his duties with immediate effect. This solution was found after legal clarification and is in the opinion of the Governing Board, the only possible solution to the current situation” of a formal complaint being filed, followed by two independent investigations. (See Biblioteksbladet for context.) To replace Leitner for the time being, the board tapped Halo Locher of Switzerland (a board member) “to take over some of the duties of the Secretary General with immediate effect until the recruitment of a new Secretary General.”

Other leadership shake-ups were discussed: President-elect Antonia Arahova of Greece is stepping away due to family matters and will be temporarily replaced by Nthabiseng Kotsokoane of South Africa, while treasurer Perry Moree of the Netherlands will be temporarily replaced by Kirsten Boelt of Denmark.
