As you know this is an exciting and busy year for the FCA. Because of our important COP5 priorities, the election cycle for the 7th General Assembly will begin early this year.
Three posts on the FCA Board of Directors will be contested in this year's election: a representative from the AMRO region, one from the SEARO region and one AT-LARGE Board Member (independent of any regional consideration).
- AMRO representative 3-year term (1 Jan 2013 to 31 December 2015)
- SEARO representative 3-year term (1 Jan 2013 to 31 December 2015)
- AT-LARGE representative 3-year term (1 Jan 2013 to 31 December 2015)
The nomination process will open 1 August 2012 and close 31 August 2012. A detailed message outlining nomination rules and processes will be sent in the coming weeks. In the meantime I would like to ask every member organization to participate: the FCA is your Alliance and we encourage you to make your voices heard.
