Executive Board

The Bureau

The Bureau of the Executive Board is comprised of one President and four Vice-Presidents, elected from the members at a special election meeting ahead of the first regular session each year, taking into account the need for equitable geographical representation.

The primary functions of the Bureau include preparation and organization of Board meetings, facilitation of transparent decision-making, and promotion of dialogue, including during informal consultations and briefings. An important part of the functions of Bureau members is that the President and Vice-Presidents represent their regional groups, and as such, brief the Board members on its deliberations and share information with their respective constituencies (including interested Observer delegations).
