Dear Colleagues,

The Philippine Librarians Associations, Inc., Bicol Librarians Council will be having an Annual General Assembly and election of a new set of BRLC officers for 2013-2015, on Friday, October 12, 2012, at the Fernando Hall, Ateneo de Naga University , Naga City.

As mandated by the PLAI, election of a new set of officers will be conducted this October 2012 for the positions of President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, Auditor and two Board Members. We are calling all Bicol librarians to submit nominees for the said positions by filling out an online form available at the BRLC official website: This is to ensure that the best candidates in the region are identified for various positions in the Council. I encourage librarians from Albay, Masbate, Sorsogon, Camarines Norte, Camamarines Sur, and Catanduanes to nominate their candidates. All nominees must be present during the Election Day. If nominated, but absent on the day of election, nomination is invalid. As a matter of policy, incumbent officers may be re-elected, but not for the same position. (Please see PLAI Guidelines for Council Election Rules). Online nominations will be accepted from September 10 to 30, 2012.

Elected officers are required to attend the PLAI Annual Convention on November 29-30, 2012 in General Santos City to elect the new PLAI (national level) Officers for 2013- 2015.

To inspire us in our assembly, we have invited a speaker to talk on the topic “Librarian Leadership in the 21st Century. “ Registration will start at 8:00 am with a fee of P300 to cover food and other incidental expenses. For further clarification/ inquiries, please contact the Nomelec Chair, Ms. Elvie Obias at 472-8447 local 2620 or email her at As BRLC members, I am calling all of you to attend our General Assembly at Fernando Hall, Ateneo de Naga University, Naga City on Friday, October 12, 2012.

Thank you.
