Election for Governing Board Technical Seat – nominate by Wednesday 18 October!

  • Sept. 27, 2023

UPDATE: the deadline to submit your nomination for the by-election of the Governing Board Technical Seat has been extended to Wednesday 18 October (5PM EST). 

An election is being held to elect the Technical Seat on the IATI Governing Board. This follows the news that the incumbent representative Pelle Aardema is stepping down from the technical seat on the Board for personal reasons.

The decision to hold a by-election was made by the Governing Board Chair, in accordance with the process set out in the IATI Standard Operating Procedures (EN / FR) at paragraphs 4.1.5 and 4.2, with one vote per member organisation based on the eligibility criteria set out in Annex 3, paragraph 2.

The successful candidate is expected to serve in this position up to the next full Board Election (March 2024) and may be nominated again at that time to serve a full two-year term.

Nominations open 27 September - 18 October 2023 (extended deadline)

Organisations who are members of IATI are invited to submit nominations for the by-election Technical Seat on the IATI Governing Board. Interested candidate organisations are required to sign and submit the two following documents:

Please send completed forms to the Secretariat Coordinator, Annelise Parr : [email protected] by 5PM EST 18 October 2023.
