Hosea Tokwe is the Treasurer whilst a new portfolio of Advocacy Officer was won by Jasper Lee Maenzanise the Librarian at the Harare Institute of Technology. Jabulani Sithole was elected the Editor for the association’s journal, the Zimbabwe Librarian. The journal is expected to be published at the end of the year and shall feature the papers presented at the conference.

The national executive has a number of issues to work immediately relating to membership, the constitution, strategic plan and reestablish ZimLA as a professional association for librarians.
