Nominations for International Cooperation Caucus due January 28

Our Caucus is nominating members for two positions: Chair-Elect and Nominee to the MLA Nominating Committee. Each has their own rewards and are
important building blocks for MLA leadership. Each is described in the MLA Board Policies Governing Caucuses, Domain Hubs, and Community Council
document (Page 8 and Page 18, respectively). <edit - the manual is also available in the International Caucus Community files at>

*Chair-elect *
The Chair-elect positon serves as Chair and Immediate Past-Chair in subsequent years (total of three [3] years). The duties of are to:
• serve as chair in the chair’s absence
• serve on the Caucus Executive Committee
• perform all other duties as requested by the caucus leadership
Position Review
This work is great for the librarian who is looking for a leadership position within MLA during a unique transition time. It is an opportunity
to shape both our caucus and its place within the larger organization. The best part has been the support of and commraderie among fellow ICC officers
who made the work neither a burden nor overwhelming. Nominate yourself or a colleague: someone who wants to make significant contributions to MLA
over the course of a career.

*The Nominee to the MLA Nominating Committee *

On an annual basis, each caucus submits the name of one (1) caucus member as a potential candidate for membership on the MLA Nominating Committee.
That Committee prepares a slate of at least two nominees for President-Elect and for each Director elected by the membership at large
whose term expires The Caucus member will prepare a biographical statement include a statement of willingness to serve if elected as a member of the
Nominating Committee. This position has restrictions:
• No person shall consent to candidacy as a caucus nominee to the MLA Nominating Committee who has already agreed to be a candidate representing
another unit of MLA
• No candidate shall also be a candidate for an elective office of MLA (including Community Council and caucus officers)
• No one shall serve on the Nominating Committee as a voting member more than one (1) term during a period of five (5) years

*Note: *All caucus leaders are encouraged to attend the MLA annual meeting to further the goal of collaboration with MLA member communities and
communication within and outside their caucus membership.

Nominee names are due to me On January 28. Please get in touch with me if you have questions about serving.
