BCLA Resolutions Committee

The BCLA Resolutions Committee accepts proposals, formulated as resolutions, from individual BCLA members and groups, which are intended to direct the Association to take action or make comments on topical issues.

Resolutions are an important formal mechanism through which BCLA members can make their concerns heard and known. When a broad range of concerns are shared, it fosters dialogue, promotes awareness, and ultimately enables the BCLA membership to speak with a united voice on issues affecting libraries, library services, library services, and the profession.

The BCLA Resolutions Committee was established as a Standing Committee of the Association on June 15, 2007. The Committee is chaired by the past President of BCLA. For more information on the resolutions process, please contact BCLA Executive Director Annette DeFaveri at execdir@bcla.bc.ca or 604-683-5354.
