'OCLC Global Council Ratifies Plans to Streamline Council Structure, Increase Member Engagement'

OCLC shares that its “OCLC Global Council ratified plans to establish a new council structure to clarify its role and increase member engagement. The new OCLC Leaders Council will be phased in over the next year with a clear purpose: to provide library perspectives that inform OCLC’s strategic goals and to elect six trustees to the Board of Trustees.”

OCLC continues, “The new Leaders Council combines three Regional Councils into one group comprised of two delegations—one consisting of members from North, Central, and South America and one that unites Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA), and Asia Pacific regions. It allows flexibility in its membership to range from no fewer than 20 to no more than 24 members.”

“The new Leaders Council is a huge step forward,” says Pilar Martinez, an OCLC board trustee and co-chairperson of the governance study planning team. “This move will not only improve the desired engagement, but will also bring us in closer alignment with the Board. This new council will be better positioned to serve its purpose in providing library insights to inform OCLC’s strategic directions, and its smaller size will allow for deeper engagement with the Board and OCLC management.”

For more information, read the press release.
