With great satisfaction and pride, we were informed of the election of Tonia Arahova as President of IFLA, 2023-25. It is a special honor for our country the election of the Greek president for the first time in the period of 94 years of IFLA.
The contest was tough, with two strong nominations from the US and Australia and the success even more impressive: 916 votes against 581 of the US candidacy.
We congratulate the new President on her election and wish her good luck in her difficult task and success of her goals and new tasks, with the consistency and responsibility that distinguishes her.
In this new effort, we will be supporters and we hope for a successful cooperation and support, in our own difficult task, with the main goal of the mutual benefit of Librarians.
Hard work, dedication, cooperation, perseverance, dignity and respect are the keys to success in any field of action and Tonia has proven that she holds them.
