LLA Board Members Elected on IFLA Committees

Following elections among incoming members of IFLA’s new Committees, 3 LLA Board members were elected to positions in the new positions. These Committees have an obligation not only to strengthen the voice of regions within IFLA, but also to make the voice of libraries louder within decision-making around the world.

Responding to regional and professional priorities, they will work to develop and deliver action plans that strengthen capacity and add value for IFLA’s Members and the wider library field, around the world.

We are therefore happy to announce that the following candidates have been successful:


Imad Bachir

Chair, Regional Division Committee Member Middle East and North Africa

Carla Chalhoub

Standing Committee Member, Document Delivery and Resource Sharing (DDRS) Section

Maya Nahra

Member, Advisory Committee on Copyright and other Legal Matters (CLM)
