Nominations for council positions take place in late September each year, and the election of council members occurs in November. Newly-elected council members assume their office on January 1st. The term of office spans the calendar year, from January to December. Following the expiration of their term of office, executive members of council still have duties to perform at the Annual General Meeting of the OSLA, which takes place in February during the Super Conference.
OSLA Council members take on responsibilities for
major issues or tasks through portfolios, or participate as
representatives on OLA committees. OSLA also forms other committees of
members, as needed.
Responsibilities are outlined on the portfolio descriptions page.
