WACC seeks new global president

By Staff on February 02, 2015


In the transition process following re-registering as a not-for-profit in Canada, WACC will elect a new President and Board of Directors in mid-2015.

With the appointment of a Nominations Committee representing all eight of WACC’s Regions, WACC’s regional executive committees have been invited to submit names of candidates.

WACC is seeking nominations for the post of President to succeed Dr Dennis A. Smith, who is stepping down having served the maximum two consecutive terms.

The position of President, which is voluntary, will be filled at elections that take place during the 2015 Meeting of Members. The President is chairperson of the Board of Directors, which will be elected at the same time.

Candidates for President should:

- Be familiar with and committed to WACC’s Vision and Mission and its statement “Communication for All”;
- Be prepared to safeguard and promote the values and mission of the organization; to ensure that the organization operates in an effective, responsible and accountable manner;
- Be skilled in conducting meetings, particularly with participants from diverse cultural backgrounds;
- Be willing to volunteer some four weeks a year to the task;
- Be knowledgeable about issues related to communication for development; be familiar with the workings of an international non-governmental organization and policy-making; and have a broad understanding of WACC’s partner relationships.

WACC operates in English, Spanish and French. However, since the common language tends to be English, candidates need to be able to speak and understand it sufficiently well to enable them to fulfil the role.

Candidates should, in the first instance, express interest by writing to nominations@waccglobal.org The deadline for nominations to be received is 28 February 2015.
