OCLC EMEA Regional Council
The Europe, Middle East and Africa Regional Council (EMEARC) is open to all OCLC Customers, Members, Partners and Distributors located in the geography. OCLC Members play a special role within EMEARC in that they are eligible to vote in elections for the EMEARC Committees and for Delegates to represent the region at Global Council.
There are two standing committees within EMEARC: the Executive Committee and the Nominating Committee.
The Executive Committee plans at least one face-to-face meeting of EMEARC annually. This meeting is held in a different country each year. The OCLC CEO and President and Members of the OCLC Strategic Leadership Team, EMEA Board of Directors and OCLC Trustees attend EMEARC meetings. EMEARC meetings are designed to provide a forum to discuss issues that are important within the region and themes that are on the agenda of Global Council. Above all EMEARC is a two way vehicle to provide advice to OCLC on its strategic direction; input to service developments and for sharing information on collaborative initiatives, best practice and the latest OCLC research and developments.
Individuals from OCLC customers in the region who are interested in serving on EMEARC committees or standing as a Delegate to Global Council are invited to send an Expression of Interest to Janet Lees, Community Liaison, OCLC EMEA.
