The main activity of the ILA is organising a biennial Conference, which is held in a different country each time and organised by one of the national branches. The Conference was held in The Netherlands more than once, for the first time before the Society came into existence in 1910, and more recently in 1970 and again in 2010, when the KNVIR celebrated its 100th anniversary.
The main objective of the ILA Conferences is to discuss the (interim) reports of the various ILA Committees and Study Groups. Committees and Study Groups consist of a limited number of persons. Each national ILA Branch is entitled to nominate one or more members. The Executive Council of the ILA appoints the members of each Committee and Study Group. The number of members a National Branch may nominate depends on how many members it has. At the moment the KNVIR is entitled to nominate two (2) members for each Committee and Study Group.
If you are interested in becoming a member of an ILA Committee or Study Group, you may indicate your interest by writing to the Board via gro.r1618709800ivnk@1618709800draob1618709800. The Board decides which nominations are submitted to the Executive Council for its approval. Please contact the President or the Secretary of the KNVIR for further information.
