IFLA WLIC 2018 General Assembly

Have your say: don’t miss the General Assembly!

The IFLA 2019 General Assembly will be held today on Wednesday 28 August from 16:15–18:00 in Lambrakis Hall and will reconvene at the Closing Session on Thursday 29 August from 16:15–18:00.

The General Assembly is the annual general meeting of IFLA members. At this meeting, the President, Treasurer, and Secretary General will report on IFLA’s annual activities and strategic directions.

Have your say!

The General Assembly is the highest governance level of the Federation and its key function is to determine the purposes and values of the Federation as a whole.  All IFLA Members or their representatives are entitled to speak at the General Assembly and have a right to vote if quorum is reached.  Voting can’t take place unless quorum is reached, so it is crucial that all eligible members (or their sanctioned representatives) who are in Athens participate in this session.

Non-voting members are also encouraged to attend, as it is an opportunity to show IFLA’s commitment to transparency and a “bottom-up” democratic process of governance.
