The Term of Office of the IFLA Representative is of three years. Reappointment of a serving Representative could only occur if no other candidates could be identified.  Reappointment would be for three years and is not renewable. 

Nomination & Election of Candidates

The Board of Directors would appoint two members to an IFLA Nomination Committee, whose responsibility would be to identify two candidates who had agreed to allow their names to be considered for the appointment.  Candidates for the IFLA appointment would normally be selected from Past Presidents of the CSLA.  The names of the prospective Candidates would be made known only to the Board and would not be released publicly.

Selection of the successful candidate would be by secret ballot of the Board of Governors.  The President of the Board would only cast a vote in the event of a tie.
