IFLA Shares the Results of Its 2022 General Assembly
IFLA’s General Assembly from Aug. 25 was the first hybrid meeting, allowing members to vote remotely in real time along with the members gathered in person in The Hague. IFLA shares, “Members from all world regions were therefore able to watch and engage live, hearing … about the work IFLA has done over 2021, ask questions, and make their voices heard on crucial issues.”
The agenda included the following:
- [R]eports from IFLA’s President and Deputy Secretary General about IFLA’s activities, and in particular the work of the IFLA President in supporting Members’ work and representing libraries internationally.
- [F]arewells to friends and colleagues who have left us in the past year, including IFLA’s President 2015-17 Donna Scheeder.
- [A] motion proposed by a number of Members calling for a roadmap for making IFLA a more communicative and transparent organisation by the end of the year. This was approved with 95% in favour to 5% against.
