The call for candidates for the CISV International Governing Board election for 2017 is now open!
The 2017 elections will be for three Governing Board Trustees, who will each serve three year terms (2017-2020).
The Governance Team has conducted an analysis of the Governing Board's self-reported individual strengths and gaps of remaining Board members (those whose term does not end in 2017). This may be helpful to both potential candidates and National Associations.
