Re: LIBCOOP Concept paper on PLA Constitutional reforms
I wish this concept paper might become 'the first drop of rain'. It shows your deep insight and sincerety towards the profession. I really liked your words about the security of female professionals who suffer blackmailing of some dirty mentality. To make the electoral process more fair, I will suggest secret balloting. The methodology we are using is not reliabe. It makes the whole electoral process doubtful. It will be a revolution in LIS Pakistan if we are able to ensure secret balloting.

Dear Professional Colleagues,
Please find attached my 'concept paper' for PLA reforms. You can take it as 'wish list', 'day dreaming' or 'building castles in the airs'. But I am always optimistic. Because PLA office bearers are the professionals who enjoy the 'trust and confidence of the members ' through votes. Rather than exploring 'who is right one to bring the change'; I think its the responsibility of all of us.
I am giving these suggestions being new 'life member of PLA' and to pay back something to this noble profession. I will not claim any 'copy right' or 'intellectual credit' for this document. Everyone is free to amend, extend, edit, improve or use these in upcoming General body meeting.
We all have witnessed the 'revival of PLA' through sincere enthusiasm in recent years. In my opinion, these reforms are about 'survival of PLA'; which is the biggest and legitimate platform of LIS in Pakistan.
All the best
