Duncan Reid (Chair), Renee de Ruijter (EC), Karen Beeton, Chris Showalter, Lorrie Maffey, Ina Diener, Ulysses Juntilla, Jason Ashby and Ingrid du Toit (Execitive Director).
To facilitate the growth of IFOMPT across the world by providing assistance and resources to potential new members and by facilitating the evolution of membership from RIG status to AMO status to full MO status.
2023-2028 Charges
Objective 1: Identification of potential new countries. Proactively engage with groups eligible for membership, particularly in regions where IFOMPT membership is thin or non-existent (i.e., South and Central America, Asia, Africa, Baltic States). Approach these countries with an offer to assist them in becoming part of IFOMPT.
Objective 2: Assist current and prospective RIGs in their process of preparing to progress to AMO status, including assisting with organisational arrangements and support of curriculum development to support transition to AMO status.
Objective 3: Develop and maintain resources to support the development of RIGs towards AMO status, including resources related to the IFOMPT Educational Standards, development of their own constitution and code of conduct, and terms of reference for any required committees.
Objective 4: Develop the policy guidelines and proposed timelines, including assessment criteria for the route to become an AMO.
