Honorary Counsellors are individuals with significant experience in the administration of CISV International who have decided to reduce their level of active participation in the work of CISV International. They are elected by the CISV International Board to recognise their distinguished service to CISV International and so that their expertise and global perspective can be shared for the benefit of CISV.
Once elected, they are non-voting members of the Board and may be asked to take on a variety of advisory roles.
