Please see Wilbur Stolt's message below. If you have an interest, please consider nominating yourself or someone to serve on the OCLC Global Council. It would be great if we could get another representative from our region.
Thanks for the consideration.
Bill DeJohn, Director, Minitex
I need your help promoting participation in the OCLC Global Council. The process to nominate staff from OCLC libraries to serve on the Global Council is open through December 10, 2010. I wish to encourage OCLC library staff in our region to nominate colleagues to stand for election to the Global Council. It is an important component in OCLC governance and we need to have voices in the Global Council. Please see the information below about the nomination process and contact me if you have questions.

OCLC Global Council Nominations
Submit nominations for OCLC Global Council Delegates and Americas Regional Council Executive Committee Officers by Dec. 10 2010. OCLC members throughout the Americas are invited to participate in the nominations process for the election of delegates from the OCLC Americas Regional Council (ARC) to serve on the OCLC cooperative's Global Council.
The Americas Regional Council Executive and Nominating committees are seeking nominations for Global Council delegates from staff of OCLC member organizations (including libraries, archives and museums) in Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the United States. We also are soliciting nominations for two officers and four Members-at-Large on the Americas Regional Council Executive Committee.
Each member organization in the Americas Region will have one vote per qualifying member institution. If you (or your organization's director) have not already done so, please update the contact information of the person who will vote on behalf of your library.
You (or your library's director) will need your OCLC symbol to update your organization's voting contact information. You will also need your OCLC symbol to submit your nomination.
