OCLC Americas Regional Council
OCLC members in the Americas can actively participate in the cooperative via the Americas Regional Council, one of three regional councils within OCLC's governance structure designed to facilitate discussions and gather input. The Council provides members a way to offer feedback on OCLC services and policies through OCLC's Global Council, and help shape the future direction of the cooperative.
All interested individuals from Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the United States are invited to participate in Americas Regional Council meetings. These meetings facilitate connections and conversations among members throughout the region and back to OCLC.
