    Call for Nominations for Standard-Setting Boards and IFAC Committees in 2014 Issued

    The Nominating Committee of IFAC has today issued the Call for Nominations for Boards and Committees in 2014. This announcement represents the beginning of the period for submitting nominations for available positions on the independent standard-setting boards* and the IFAC Board and committees. The period for nominations ends on March 15, 2013.

    For 2014, there are 46 vacancies on boards and committees, including two leadership positions—the chairs of the Professional Accountancy Organization Development Committee and the Professional Accountants in Business Committee.

    “The independent standard-setting boards and the IFAC Board and committees attract extremely talented and qualified individuals with wide-ranging experience, which contributes to their authority,” said IFAC President Warren Allen. “We thank all our stakeholders, including our members and the Forum of Firms, for their continued support and look forward to receiving their nominations.”

    The Nominating Committee is looking for highly-qualified nominees who possess knowledge of the subject matters considered by the relevant board or committee, are proficient in English, and are willing to commit between 300 and 600 hours per year, depending on the board or committee. Nominations from the Africa-Middle East and the Latin America-Caribbean regions, as well as BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) are particularly encouraged, as are nominations of female candidates.

    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. For more information regarding open vacancies, requirements for membership, and how to apply, please refer to the Call for Nominations.

    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.

    IFAC encourages all members and associates to share the Call for Nominations with their membership in order to solicit the most talented professionals.
