Regional Executive Committees

All members of IBE are grouped within geographical sectors known as regions, of which there are seven. Each voting Member of IBE is a member of a Regional Committee and has one vote within it. Other non-voting members of IBE are non-voting members of a Regional Committee.

IBE Regions

  • Africa
  • Eastern Mediterranean
  • Europe
  • Latin America
  • North America
  • South East Asia
  • Western Pacific

Each Regional Committee elects a Regional Executive Committee (REC), to include at least a Chair, a Vice Chair and a Secretary, and this REC is accountable to, and reports to the International Executive Committee and also to the voting Members of the Regional Committee. The term of office is four years and runs in tandem with the term of the International Executive Committee. Each Regional Committee also elects one Vice-President to the International Executive Committee. The International Executive Committee Vice President for each region also serves as an ex officio member with full voting rights on his or her Regional Executive Committee.
