Board & Advisory Board

The Board of directors consists of: Two co-Presidents; a Secretary; a Treasurer and four other members.

The Board of Directors is composed of at least 6 members selected by the General Assembly, making every effort that all continents with members are represented.

In the spirit of the Culture of Peace, the Board of Directors has no maximum number of members. During the process in which the General Assembly selects members to be part of the Board of Directors as well as during Board of Directors processes, members will volunteer to be part of the Board of Directors or its committees based on their inspiration or calling. The Board of Directors will strive to appreciate diversity and make the presence of each member complementary and relevant to Board of Directors processes. Instead of having a fixed maximum number of members, the Board of Directors shall have an ongoing dialogue about how to operate with its present number so that everyone can contribute and so that the Board is effective at the same time.

The Board of Directors must include at a minimum the President, who is elected by the General Assembly and chairs the Board of Directors; a Secretary; and a Treasurer. The Secretary and the Treasurer are elected by the Board of Directors from among its own membership. The President, the Secretary and the Treasurer together compose the Executive Committee, which may also include additional members of the Board of Directors.
