*Subject:* [trc] FW: Call for Volunteers - Indigenous Matters Committee



Hi all and Happy Friday with apologies for the mass email,



The call for the Indigenous Matters Committee and the Charter has gone out
the member associations has gone out as follows. I have spoken to most of
you about either re-joining or joining but if I haven’t please consider
this an invitation to need to contact your association and express your
interest.  If you have any questions, please reply to me only and not to
the entire list.



There is no limit to the number of nominees per association. Members are
needed for teams and working groups in many areas including archives,
health, law, records management, school libraries, special libraries,
children’s librarianship as well as specialists in cataloguing,
classification and teaching faculty in libraries, archives and cultural
memory institutions. Other areas that are of interest is Indigenous
languages, digital preservation and Indigenous Knowledge protection
(copyright). As well, a web specialist is needed to manage and update the
Indigenous Resources Hub.



As mentioned below, the time commitment isn’t extensive with 2 - one hour
meetings per month as this is on-going work. Each team  and working group
will set goals and develop a workplan with short and long term goals.
Progress reports will be due in January but nothing as extensive as the
Truth & Reconciliation Committee report & recommendations.



Also, I know I am forgetting people that should be invited so if you know
someone who is interested in Indigenous matters and would like to be part
of a national team dedicated to working with Indigenous people, please feel
to recommend them to your member association and/or to me.



Respectfully,



*Canadian Federation of Library Associations-Fédération Canadienne des
Associations de Bibliothèques (CFLA-FCAB) Indigenous Representative and
Chair, Indigenous Matters Committee*

Dear CFLA-FCAB Members:

I am writing to you on behalf of the Canadian Federation of Library
Associations/Fédération canadienne des associations de bibliothèques. The
Board of CFLA-FCAB determined that our highest priority for 2016 was to
help libraries respond to the Calls to Action found in the report of the
Truth and Reconciliation Commission/Commission de vérité et réconciliation
du Canada. Established in 2016, the CFLA-FCAB Truth and Reconciliation
Committee/Vérité et reconciliation completed their mandate in early 2017
and delivered a report with 10 overarching recommendations
http://cfla-fcab.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Truth-
and-Reconciliation-Committee-Report-and-Recommendations.pdf.

CFLA-FCAB is now implementing the report and recommendations, commencing
with Recommendation #1: Establishing a Standing Committee on Indigenous
Matters. Please see the attached Committee Charter for more information
about this important initiative.

CFLA-FCAB invites volunteers to serve on the CFLA-FCAB Indigenous Matters
Committee. The entire Committee will meet 10 times a year. Subcommittees
will also meet 10 times a year, on a staggered schedule. Meetings will be
via electronic means such as teleconference, or online. Committee members
should be willing to dedicate themselves to further the responsibilities of
Indigenous Matters Committee, including implementing the recommendations of
the Truth & Reconciliation Report.

Members of the Truth & Reconciliation Committee have asked to continue and
due to their hard work and diligence, I can unequivocally recommend that
they be reappointed. In addition, there are individuals needed in the areas
of archives, health, law, records management, school libraries, special
libraries, children’s librarianship as well as specialists in cataloguing,
classification and teaching faculty in libraries, archives and cultural
memory institutions.



We ask your association as a member of CFLA-FCAB and the Canadian library
community to recommend possible member(s) for this committee no later
than *July
24, 2017*. The first full Indigenous Matters Committee conference call will
take place on July 28, 2017 at 12 pm (EST).



Respectfully,

Camille Callison

Chair, Indigenous Matters Committee

CFLA-FCAB
