A feature of IFLA’s new governance structure, Regional Division Committees comprise members from across each region who can support the development and delivery of action plans that respond to the needs of the library field across the region. They will contribute to IFLA’s overall strategy and work with other relevant committees and groups to increase library advocacy within the region.
The Regional Division Committee for North America is composed of 20 members with 10 members from Canada and 10 members from the United States. The committee members will assume their responsibilities in August following the IFLA General Assembly.
