CFLA/FCAB’s Intellectual Freedom Committee is searching for TWO new members. We  welcome nominations from CFLA/FCAB member associations and self-nominations from  members of CFLA/FCAB member associations. Once appointed to the Committee, the  responsibility of members is to the Committee, not to the nominating body. 

The Committee strives to include a wide variety of backgrounds and interests, uniting  individuals who value the principles of intellectual freedom and their application in the present  context. The Committee is particularly interested in nominations from individuals from school  libraries, but will also consider applicants from public, government, special, and academic  libraries. 

Appointments will be made for a term of 3 years, renewable once, with terms beginning in both  October and April.  

The Committee will normally meet monthly between September and June, with additional  meetings scheduled as required. For 2024/2025 the meetings will occur on the fourth Thursday  of the month at 9:00 am PT, 10:00 am MT, 11:00 am CT, 12:00 pm ET, 1:00 pm AT, 2:00 pm  NFLDT.
