Officers Corner

Purpose of the Officers Corner:

Welcome to the Officers Corner. This is a toolkit for IFLA Section Officers, Special Interest Group Convenors, Strategic Programme Chairs and Directors, Standards Review Group Chairs and Regional Office Managers. Here you will find information, forms and guidelines issued by the Professional Committee to help your Professional Unit support IFLA’s Strategic Direction and function as a Dynamic Unit.

IFLA Officers are the Chair and Secretary of each IFLA Section; there are 88 Officers covering the 44 IFLA Sections. The Officers are the official representatives of the Sections’ Standing Committees and the channel for communication between each Section and the Professional Committee. The Professional Committee oversees the Governing Board’s professional programme of activities and guides the work of the Sections to carry out this programme.

These web pages are intended to provide the information, forms, and guidelines issued by the Professional Committee, and that the Officers need for their IFLA work.
