From the Chair
Updated: Jan 20, 2020
Dear KM Section members,
During the KM Business Meeting I of the 85th IFLA WLIC 2019 in Athens, the newly elected KM Standing Committee members convened to elect the new officers. Before that, Julien Sempéré, Secretary of our Section, had collected the nominations for the positions of the Chair and the Secretary. The results of the elections are: Eva Semertzaki was re-elected as Chair and Spencer Acadia was elected as Secretary for the period 2019-2021. Liz Turner was appointed as Information Coordinator.
I would like to express my sincere thankfulness to Julien Sempéré, outgoing Secretary and K. Jane Burpee, outgoing Information Coordinator for their effective contribution to the progress of the KM Section. I also wish to congratulate Spencer and Liz for their new positions. The three of us with the Standing Committee members will work for the next two years to fulfill the goals of the Section.
In this issue of the Newsletter, the reports of the program of the WLIC in Athens 2019 are presented. My appreciation goes to the program chairs and their teams for executing such a great program in 2019. The plan for the next WLIC in Dublin 2020 will be also presented in the next pages.
Chair, IFLA Knowledge Management Section
