A challenge we face as a member association is quantifying what each individual member gets from being part of a national network. The best response is provided by our members, who are willing to share their highs, lows, and in-betweens.

LIANZA has a role in advocacy to support libraries in asserting the crucial role they play in communities. We write submissions to funding/governing organisations and are sometimes able to support these in person.

If there’s one thing that motivates me it is observing people work hard for their community and I find myself reflecting that energy – being ‘charged’ by it - in doing my best to acknowledge or support that. Soooo … what’s it like being a ‘guest’, a non-librarian, and a vendor at a LIANZA Conference? Well... here’s my thoughts... and I might add there’s some thoughts we can all take to getting the best out of attending a conference.

LIANZA is bidding to bring the IFLA congress to New Zealand, and to support our bid NZ Tourism funded our attendance at this year’s IFLA congress.

Leadership is something I have always been interested in, and over the last four years I have been working towards gaining skills in this area.

This month we've been busy preparing for our annual audit. Conference preparations are also in full swing-just a month and a half to go now!
