A Non-Governmental Organization in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO
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. The Executive Board may also co-opt up to three additional Ordinary Members, who retire at the General Assembly immediately following their appointment, and who are eligible for re-appointment.
The Executive Board is governed by ICTM Rule 8, and by the Memorandum on procedural rules of the ICTM Executive Board.
