Dr Kang-Hyun Lee, IAVE World President, has announced the appointment of these new National Representatives: Ouedraogo Georges, Burkina Faso (right); Moussa Guettari, Algeria (top left); and Dr Abdulmalik Gichuki Tuesday (bottom left), executive director of the National Volunteer Network Trust (NAVNET), Kenya. IAVE National Representatives are appointed by the World President in consultation with the Board of Directors, based on the recommendation of Regional Representatives.
The National Representatives are responsible for representing IAVE in their countries – building awareness of our work, promoting membership, maintaining contact with members in the country, contributing to E-IAVE and identifying opportunities for IAVE engagement there.
Ruth MacKenzie, National Representative from Canada and also president and CEO of Volunteer Canada, was elected in January 2011 by the National Representatives present at the IAVE World Volunteer Conference in Singapore to serve as their representative to the IAVE board of directors. The IAVE board has decided that the next election will take place by e-vote to allow all National Representatives to participate. It will be scheduled for early 2013.
