An International Council of 20 members is elected every four years by delegates from the Member Organisations and Chapters, in the General Meeting held at our quadrennial World Congress. Council meets annually to guide the work of the organisation.
At the administrative level, regional co-ordinators initiate and support regional and local projects, while the International Secretariat monitors religious freedom concerns and administers worldwide programmes.
