Executive Board

The management of the International Council for Traditional Music is vested in the Executive Board, consisting of a President, one or two Vice Presidents (Officers), and nine Ordinary Members, all of whom are elected by the membership of the Council. 

Officers are elected for a term lasting until the second Ordinary Meeting of the General Assembly following their election (typically four years), while Ordinary Members are elected for a term lasting until the third Ordinary Meeting of the General Assembly after their election (typically six years). All Executive Board members are eligible for re-election only once.
