Governing Board Elections 2022

The call for candidates for the 2022 CISV International Governing Board election is open!

The 2022 elections will be for three Governing Board Trustees. Each trustee will serve a three-year term (2022-2025).

The Governance Team is conducting an analysis of the Governing Board’s self-reported individual strengths and gaps of remaining Board members (those whose term does not end in 2022). This may be helpful to both potential candidates and National Associations. Candidates who are able to fill the skills gaps would be beneficial. Here you can reference the CISV Governing Board Demographics and Skills Analysis 2022.

If you have a candidate in mind or are thinking of running for election yourself, the following information and documents will give you an idea of the commitment and skills required and the terms of office.

Anyone qualified to serve on the Governing Board can become a candidate for election to the Governing Board by submitting a fully and properly completed Governing Board Candidate Information package by 31 May (23.59 UTC).

Election Procedures for the Governing Board

We strongly suggest you submit your completed Information Package well in advance of the deadline. The sooner your package is complete the sooner your name can be published in the regular updates of official candidates.

Be reminded that you cannot be accepted as a candidate unless we have received your fully completed Information Package by 31 May (no later than 23:59 UTC).

Please note that the Governing Board is meeting virtually for approximately 3 hours every month. During the year two longer virtual meetings are held for two to three days. Dates for September onwards will be set once the new Governing Board is in place. At the moment, for 2022, there are no in-person meetings planned for the Governing Board.
