Each year, the Nominating Committee issues two Calls for nominations—the call to announce positions on the Independent Standard-Setting Boards and the call to announce positions on IFAC Board and Committees.
The Calls for Nominations serve as prospectuses for all stakeholders, including international organizations, governmental agencies, and the general public, as well as IFAC member bodies and the Forum of Firms, and set out the upcoming opportunities for membership on the boards and committees. The Calls, and the accompanying Developing a Nominations Strategy, encourage a clear understanding of the Nominating Committee’s selection process and criteria, including the goal of achieving an appropriate balance in the composition of each board and committee. The Calls also provide information on relevant membership qualifications; offer strategic guidance for developing a nominations strategy and selecting optimal candidates; and outline the required time commitment and performance expectations for volunteers.
Vacancies on the independent standard-setting boards are open for nominations by all stakeholders, including professional accountancy and international organizations, governmental agencies, firms, and the public. Travel support is available to qualified candidates from developing nations, self-nominees, and public members.
Nominations for the IFAC Board and committees may be submitted by IFAC member bodies.
