The Steering Committee is elected every 4 years by GFMD's General Members and is responsible for major strategic and policy matters, GFMD memberships issues, and oversee the work of the Secretariat.
Steering Committee members need to dedicate 2/3 hours per month to:
- Attend Steering Committee meetings
- Communicate with GFMD Executive Director
- Participate in strategic decision making, providing inputs and guidance.
No, Steering Committee members do not receive remuneration for their engagement with GFMD and they are generally expected to cover their travel expenses for an annual in-person meeting.
In exceptional circumstances, on a case to case basis, GFMD may cover some of these expenses.
General members must have paid their 2021 (and previous) membership fee to be able to nominate a representative to be a candidate for the Steering Committee.
Members must be up to date on their membership fees to be able to vote.
