Call for World Board Members

The IFOAM World Board is democratically elected by our membership and acts out the mandate given to it at the General Assembly for a three-year term. At the General Assembly, to be held following the Organic World Congress in Istanbul, Turkey, in October 2014, IFOAM Members will vote on the World Board candidates running for the 2014-2017 term. 

The Call for World Board Members provides an outline of the responsibilities, competencies and other requirements for running for the IFOAM World Board.

IFOAM's Policy 57 on the Nomination of Candidates for the World Board provides background information.
