  • Vice President/President Elect – A three year commitment to the executive committee, the Vice President learns the ropes and plans the Spring Conference, serves as president the following year and Past President the year after that.
  • Secretary – A two year commitment to the executive committee, the Secretary is responsible for minutes of all executive and general meetings and overall communication with association members.

If you are interested in taking advantage of a great opportunity and serving on the executive of the NLLA, please contact the Chair of the Nominations and Elections Committee, Erin Alcock.

Please consult our Constitution for more information.  

This year we are piloting online elections!  The intent is to allow all members to vote, not just those who attend the general meeting in person.  Please stay tuned for more information and the election itself (to be held mid-April).

The NLLA wants you!

The NLLA nominating committee is seeking nominations for one officer of the association, the Vice President/President Elect.

  • This is a three year position; Vice President for the first year, President the second and Past President in the final year.
  • Activities and responsibilities include; planning the NLLA Spring Conference in the first year and learning the ropes so that you can act as the official representative of the Association.

If anyone is interested but would like to ask some questions please get in touch. Nominations will be heard from the floor of the annual general meeting to be held from 10:50am – 11:50 am on May 13, 2013 but will also be accepted via email to me in the event that you cannot attend this meeting (please drop me a line either way, it will be useful to know that nobody is interested in doing this sooner rather than later). The election will be held at the annual general meeting, votes will be by secret ballot (special arrangements for those members unable to attend this meeting can be made. Please get in touch if you would like to take advantage of this).

We are also seeking a volunteer or possibly two to serve as coordinators of NLLA’s Canadian Library Month and Freedom to Read week activities for the upcoming year. Again, if more information required, please get in touch.

Please consider getting involved in our awesome association! These positions are open to any interested members.

Erin, President 2012-2013
