IFAC Issues Notice of Call for Nominations for Boards and Committees for 2014
The Notice of the Call for Nominations for Boards and Committees in 2014 was issued today, along with its companion guide, Developing a Nominations Strategy. These in-depth documents, located on the IFAC website, are designed to help stakeholders identify the most qualified nominee for each available position on the boards and committees. They contain strategic and practical advice for nominating organizations and individuals, allowing them to make more informed decisions in their selections and to understand the requirements and expectations of nominees.
All vacancies on the independent standard-setting boards* are open for nominations by the public including, for the first time, the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board. The Nominating Committee follows an open and transparent process in selecting the best candidates for the available positions, while also aiming to achieve gender, regional, and professional balance.
Each year, approximately one-third of the 155 positions on the boards and committees have openings, though serving members may be reappointed for some of those positions. For more information about the Nominating Committee, its due process, or guidance in selecting the best candidate, please visit www.ifac.org/about-ifac/structure-governance/nominating-committee.
The official Call for Nominations for Boards and Committees in 2014 will be issued on January 15, 2013, and nominations may be submitted from January 15 to March 15, 2013. All applications should be submitted electronically via the IFAC nominations database; instructions on how to submit a nomination will be included in the Call for Nominations.
