Board and Committee Nominees 2020-2022

2019 Board and Committee Nominees 2020-2022

The nominations process has been finalised and below are the nominations for the GWI Board and different GWI Committees for the 2020-2022 triennium.

The Nominations Committee has worked hard on the Board and Committee nominations, and we thank them for their persistence and diligence in this task. Independent members were given the opportunity to nominate candidates.

The Board and Committees represent the activities of GWI and the involvement of members. The shortage of nominations is of great concern. We urge NFAs to consider that GWI is their organisation and that it requires the involvement and active participation of members in governance and management.

There are both Board and Committee positions vacant. We urge you all to consider what is needed for GWI for the next triennium, so that the new Board and Committees can reach out and find suitable candidates to fill the vacancies.
