Online Events Committee
Terms of reference
The purpose of the Online Events Committee is to develop a programme of online meetings, talks and social events between the annual in-person Congresses. Taking full advantage of the opportunities for interaction and communication across borders and time zones that the online space presents, the Committee will support IAML’s core aims by providing a forum for the sharing of knowledge and expertise, promoting the activities of members and supporting professional development.
The Committee is responsible for formulating an annual programme of approximately two to four events, ensuring that the broadest range of topics are covered to reflect the interests and activities of IAML members worldwide. It identifies topics and speakers, in liaison with the IAML Sections and National Branches where appropriate, and issues calls for contributions via IAML-L. The Committee is also tasked with administrative activities associated with managing the Association’s Zoom subscription and the registration process for attendees, promoting events in cooperation with the IAML web editors, and where possible recording sessions for later viewing by IAML members.
The Committee comprises between 4 and 6 members, appointed by the Board, including the IAML Programme Officer and Secretary General as ex-oﬀicio members.
Maria Teresa Delgado Sanchez, chair
Anders Cato, ex officio
