Members of the Board are elected at our Annual Meeting. Each member of the board comes from one of our member organisations but is elected as an individual.

We have a diverse range of member organisations. The organisations vary in size and have different traditions and types of work and projects. The board members have a broad range of experience and expertise. The Board is an example of ecumenical cooperation where, despite different expressions of faith, we work together for and believe in a better world.

At the Annual Meeting in May 2022 the following Board members were elected:
