Dear APLAP Members
It is with much regret that the Association of Parliamentary Librarians of Asia and the Pacific Executive Committee has accepted the resignation of our Secretary, Mustika Wati (Indonesian Parliamentary Library). Mustika took up the role of Secretary in mid-2022 and has played an active role in the Executive team since then. On behalf of the APLAP membership, the Executive Committee would like to wish Mustika well in her future endeavours and offer our sincere gratitude for her hard work and commitment to our organisation.
As a result of Mustika’s departure, the role of APLAP Secretary is current vacant. This prompts the APLAP Executive Committee to open nominations for this position.
Being involved in the APLAP Executive Committee is a great way to get to know your colleagues from across Asia and the Pacific. Serving on the Executive gives you the opportunity to help guide the direction of an organisation dedicated to developing the skills and service of its members, and to give back to a profession that we are all invested in.
All employees of parliamentary libraries or research services that hold active membership of the Association of Parliamentary Librarians of Asia and the Pacific are eligible to stand for election.
How do I nominate someone or get nominated?
Nominations can be made in two ways:
individuals may nominate themselves
a member may nominate another individual for election, provided the nominee certifies she/he is willing to stand
All nominees must complete the attached form and return it to Fairlyn Sarga (email@example.com), Acting Secretary, by Friday 24 February 2023.
Would you like to know more?
If you are interested in nominating for election and would like to discuss any aspect of serving on the APLAP Executive Committee, please contact any of our office bearers who are happy to discuss their experiences and answer any questions you might have.
APLAP Execuitve Committee
Vice-President Asia and Acting Secretary
