FOPLA’s volunteer Board of Directors carries out advocacy efforts, and allocates funds raised towards appropriate programs and activities in an effort to help FOPLA continually achieve its mandate. These committed volunteers ensure that FOPLA’s vision and mission are carried out, and work tirelessly in our support of Ottawa’s public libraries.
Directors-at-Large manage special projects or provide unique services and perspectives as volunteers on FOPLA’s Board.
Regional Coordinators serve as key liaisons between FOPLA’s Board and branch locations. By representing bookstore managers and volunteers, they provide critical feedback on how Board initiatives and policies might be implemented at the local committee level.
Our Regional Coordinators also influence and communicate decisions that impact book store operations, report on bookstore operation, and take on special projects as required.
