Libraries Connected is seeking nominations for President Elect, to serve from November 2022 to June 2024 and thereafter as President from June 2024-2026, and for one more year as Past President.
Throughout this period, the successful applicant will also be a member of the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees is responsible for providing the organisation with effective challenge and scrutiny and is collectively responsible for setting and reviewing our strategic direction, in line with Libraries Connected charitable objectives. Our President is a key role for our organisation, as a confident figurehead with vision, expertise and creativity to help us develop and grow our role as a Sector Support Organisation.
The term of office for the position of President Elect is slightly longer than usual to cover current Trustee turnover. The information pack attached to this article will provide you with information about the organisation’s mission, core purposes and future plans and details about the key skills and attributes we are looking for in the President.
The deadline for the receipt of applications has been extended to 5pm on Monday 26 of September 2022. All applications will be shared with the Libraries Connected membership for a process of online voting on 27 September 2022. Voting will close on 11 October 2022 and the results will be announced the week beginning 18 October 2022. The President Elect will formally take up the role in November 2022.
Libraries Connected President Ayub Khan MBE says:
It’s [President] a role I feel honoured to hold, as well as immensely rewarding and inspiring as I am privileged to see so much innovation and determination across our sector.
