Would you like to influence MSF Norway through actively participating in its governance? Or do you know the perfect MSFer with the right profile to take that role?
It’s time to start thinking of new candidates for our board. For the GA 2020, 4 positions will be open in the MSF Norway Board of Directors.
As a medical humanitarian organisation, medical experience is highly important. We therefore should aim at electing minimum 2 medical profiles among the 4 seats in order to maintain a medical majority on our board as required by our statutes. We also need to elect a treasurer this year. Our association benefits greatly from having a board representing our members as broadly as possible, hence other varied competencies are also of interest, for example non medical field experience. So take some time to think: Do you feel you could contribute to the board and be a great representative of our association? Or do you want to nominate somebody else you feel has the right skills?
We encourage you to get in touch with our 2019-2020 Election Committee!
Here are 4 strong reasons for being a member of the Board:
- Insight and possibility to influence in one of the world’s major humanitarian organisations
- Learn about board work as well as operational support functions like finance, communications and human resources and see the machinery from the inside!
- Contribute with your experience and ideas into the development of MSF
- Grow your professional network with other committed MSFers
Should you be interested to run as a Board Member candidate at the upcoming election, or have any questions about running for election and board work, please contact the 2019-2020 Election Committee:
