CILIP AGM this year will be in London on Thursday October 15th, and while, yes this does prevent most academic librarians, and those of us who live outside of the capital city, from attending, if you fall into one of the following membership categories you have a proxy vote:
- Affilliate members
- Certificated Affiliates
- Associate members
- Chartered members
- Chartered fellows
- Honorary fellows
CILIP must receive your vote, on the official form, BEFORE 3.30pm on October 13th for it to be counted. (But I'd suggest you get it in by the 12th at the latest to be sure, as CILIP admin processes are not well known for their super-efficiency.)
Please don't ONLY request your own proxy vote - please also spread the message to colleagues who are members and persuade them to do the same.
And remember, this is not the only issue being voted on - see http://www.cilip.org.uk/aboutcilip/howcilipworks/agm for details.
