The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), has issued an announcement to alert its members and the public of its "Notice of the Call for Nominations to IFAC Boards and Committees in 2012."
Both the Notice of the Call for Nominations and its companion guide, "Developing a Nominations Strategy," are designed to help the members of IFAC, and others, identify the most qualified person for nomination to each available position on the boards and committees, while also achieving a gender, regional, and professional balance. These in-depth documents, located on the IFAC website, contain strategic and practical advice for nominating organisations, which allows them to make more informed decisions in their selections and to understand the requirements and expectations of the nominees.
The official 2012 Call for Nominations for Boards and Committees supported by IFAC will be issued on January 15, 2011, and nominations may be submitted from January 15 to March 15, 2011.
Each year, roughly one third of the 150+ positions on the boards and committees come up for rotation, though for some of those positions serving members may be re-appointed. The nominating process is designed to ensure a diverse membership, and a transparent and consistent approach to filling available positions.
