Two open SC positions and the Chair position becoming vacant

According with the IGeLU Statute  we will have to renew a part of the IGeLU Steering Committee during the next IGeLU meeting in Prague.

We have 3 official vacant positions this Year, due to the fact that:

  • Naomi Greidinger – University of Haifa, Israel [2012-2014; 2014-2016; 2016-2018] is at the end of her office terms. According with the Statute,  Naomi is at the end of her mandate and cannot be elected for a new term.
  • Tracey Clarke – University of Sheffield, UK – [2015-2017; 2017-] is stepping down midterm. Tracey needs to step down for personal reasons.
  • Theo Engelman – Utrecht University, Netherlands – [2012-2014; 2015; 2015-2018] is at the end of his first term as IGeLU Chair. Theo has decided not to stand for re-election so IGeLU needs to elect a new Chair for the term 2018-2021.

The voting procedure will take place at the 13th IGeLU Annual Meeting in Prague (Czech Republic), during the Assembly of Members.

The institutions that are not planning to send their representatives to the Assembly of Members will be able to act their vote by proxy (a specific message will be sent in the due time).

If you wish to present your candidacy or you would like to propose a candidate from an IGeLU member Institution, please feel free to contact me by email guido.badalamenti {at} asb.unisi(.)it  preferably before or at the Annual Meeting. The candidates will be asked to present themselves during the Assembly with the help of a few slides.

Candidates already volunteering

At the moment, I received the following candidacies and proposals:

For the open Chair position:

  • Dave Allen – State Library of Queensland, Australia is candidate for the open position of IGeLU Chair
    • If Dave is elected as Chair, his position of Steering Committee member becomes vacant which means we will have three open Steering Committee positions from that moment.

For the open Steering Committee positions:

  • Jone Thingbø – BIBSYS Consortium, Norway is candidate for the open position of Steering Committee member
  • Maribel Alvarado – Catholic University of Chile, Chile is candidate for the open position of Steering Committee member
  • Tulie Amichal, – College of Management Academic Studies, Israel is candidate for the open position of Steering Committee member

On looking forward to hear from you. Best regards,

Guido Badalamenti
IGeLU Treasurer
