Due to unforeseen circumstances IATUL is renewing the call for interested and qualified candidates to represent the Americas on its board of directors.
 
The International Association of Scientific and Technological University Libraries is calling for interested and qualified candidates to serve on its board of directors.
 
IATUL is looking for candidates to represent the Americas on its board of directors, the executive body of IATUL responsible for the further development of the association.
 
According to the IATUL constitution ordinary and affiliated members may propose representatives for election. Nominations shall name the candidate and shall show evidence of the candidate's consent. The nomination must have a proposer and seconder, who must both 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 at the annual conference. New board members will be expected to take up their office on the 1 January of the following year. 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 endeavours of the IATUL Board of Directors, especially by attending board meetings and taking on responsibilities related to assigned tasks and roles on the board. 
 
Nominations may be sent to the IATUL office (iatul@ub.tum.de) by the end of April 2014 and name the candidate, who must be the official representative of his or her institution.
 
Please use the nomination form.
 
On behalf of the IATUL Board of Directors
