We would also like to share with the community that the CFLA-FCAB and CLA are working towards a transition of English Canadian representation and Section representation at IFLA from CLA to the CFLA-FCAB and we hope to be able to be able to provide further details in the near future. The CFLA-FCAB board of directors has recently passed a motion to take over the Co-Publisher role on RDA from CLA. Work is underway with ALA, CILIP, and CLA (current co-publishers) to make this decision formal and to ensure a smooth transition.

We will continue to keep you apprised of progress and decisions as we are able.
