IATUL is calling for interested and qualified candidates to serve on its Board of Directors, the executive body of IATUL responsible for leading the development of the Association, its strategic direction, and actions.

IATUL is looking for a nomination to represent Europe (1 seat)

Ordinary and Associate Members may propose representatives for election. Nominations shall name the candidate and shall show evidence of the candidate's consent. Nominators must be official representatives of a member institution. The decision as to who shall be invited to join the Board will be made by the Board and presented to the General Assembly for approval in 2024.

Members of the Board are elected for a term of three years and shall be eligible for immediate re-election to one additional term. Candidates are expected to take an active part in the endeavors of the IATUL Board of Directors, especially by attending Board meetings and taking on responsibilities related to assigned tasks and roles on the Board. The Board meets four times a year. Board members are expected to attend in person at the Annual Conference and General Assembly.

Interested, but hesitating as you don’t think this could be you? Studies have shown that some groups of people are less likely to apply for roles if they don’t meet every single qualification. We are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic association, so if you’re excited about this opportunity but worried that your experience doesn’t align perfectly, we would like to encourage you to give it a go and apply. You may be just the right person.

Please submit your nomination by completing the online nomination form. Nominations may be submitted by 30th April 2023 and name the candidate, who must be the Library Director/University Librarian of an IATUL member library.
