Why did I join the Management and Marketing Section?
Because IFLA has a worldwide impact. IFLA is perhaps one of the more privileged international organizations as topics with which librarians work is, by definition, international. Current issues, such as the changing role of libraries and librarians, are complex and interwoven and require global solutions. IFLA offers me the opportunity to link up to IFLA's worldwide network of library and information professionals, to share my views, concerns and expertise with other LIS professionals and organizations working in the field and, in turn, learn from their experiences.

What is like to be the secretary of M&M Section?
It`s a great pleasure for me to assist the IFLA community and the Standing Committee Members, facilitating correspondence, admit new members and organize official meetings with efficiency. The Secretary of M&M Section also has a Human Relations function - to bring together the community!
