Becoming an OCLC Global Council delegate

During their term they advise OCLC on strategic issues and participate in both virtual and in-person meetings and may also serve on OCLC committees and working groups.

Global Council meets in person at least twice annually. The EMEA Regional Council Executive Committee meets in person in The Netherlands in late September / early October, at the EMEA Regional Council Meeting in February, and also during the Global Council Meetings. There will be virtual / teleconference meetings scheduled at other times of the year. The EMEA Regional Council Executive Committee Delegates actively participate in a Regional Membership Programme and also provide input to the planning of the annual EMEA Regional Council Meeting.
