The New Zealand Law Librarians Association is calling for nominations for positions on our National Executive for the 2013/2014 year
The New Zealand Law Librarians Association is calling for nominations for the following positions on our National Executive for the 2013/2014 year:
•Regional Convenor: Auckland
•Regional Convenor: Wellington
•Regional Convenor: Southern
Our AGM this year will be on Wednesday 13 November 2013.
Being part of the National Executive is a great way to network amongst your peers, both within New Zealand and overseas. It is an opportunity to be involved first hand in decisions that move the profession forward and to have your say. Over the years members of the National Executive have been instrumental in establishing conferences, ongoing professional development, and networks with publishers and with fellow professionals in and outside New Zealand. Regional Convenors, along with a team of committee members have the opportunity to arrange exciting professional development opportunities for legal information professionals as well as the all-important social events!
Under the terms of the NZLLA constitution, those holding the position of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer must be able to ensure their presence at least three quarters of the NZLLA meetings at no cost to NZLLA beyond the cost of teleconferencing. This is not usually a terribly onerous requirement - there are 11 scheduled National Executive meetings per year (one each month except January) and one AGM.
If you are a financial member of NZLLA and feel you could make a contribution in any of these roles, ask a fellow member to nominate you via the attached form and send it to me (contact details printed on the form). Please note: Only financial members may nominate and stand for election. Nominations must be received by Friday 13 September.
For further information, please feel free to contact me or any other member of the current National Executive. Our contact details are on the NZLLA website: http://www.nzlla.org.nz/about-us/
