The International Federation of Biosafety Associations (IFBA) is currently soliciting nominations from its national and regional Member Biosafety Associations to serve on the IFBA Board of Directors. The IFBA needs a skillful and diverse Board to continue our strategic direction and increase our impact in support of our mission. Achieving gender balance and equitable geographical representation on the IFBA Board is a key consideration in the election process. The new Board positions will become available in September 2023 and will continue for a term of 3 years. Additionally, the IFBA’s Board may also include Observers who will act as ex-officio members from health or security organizations, institutions, governments, or other interested groups. Candidates for observers to the Board are also being solicited currently.

Nominations should be submitted no later than July 28, 2023, to the IFBA Secretariat at using the nomination form which can be downloaded here.
