The IYPF’s Board of Directors are excited to announce today, on the IYPF’s 9th birthday (4th October 2010), the upcoming Annual General Meeting of the organisation, and a call for IYPF members to nominate for election to the IYPF Board at the AGM.
The AGM will be held on Tuesday 7th December online via skype (or equivalent technology). Further details on how to register to attend, the agenda, and all other information will be communicated to our stakeholders on Tuesday 9th November.
One of the key items of business at the AGM will be to elect a new Board of Directors. This is an important step in putting in place the new leadership IYPF needs as part of its regeneration and renewal towards a vibrant future (as communicated to you back in June).
This is your opportunity to nominate for election to the Board to lead the organisation and bring your enthusiasm, ideas and energy to renew and transform the IYPF over the next 2 years.
The IYPF Board of Directors governs the organisation, determines strategy and direction, and oversees its operations. You can read more on the position here http://bit.ly/989MCh.

Nominations are due no later than Wednesday 3rd November 2010.
