Throughout its sixty-year history, the GNEC (formerly the NGO DPI Executive Committee) has developed and benefitted from leaders in the NGO communities throughout the world. Many have been long-time associates, workshop or conference leaders, luminaries supporting the field, UN NGO-related staff (luminaries for civil society in the field!), as well as direct contributors, including donors, and especially our long history of notable Board Members and Officers, and the newly forming GNEC Board of Advisors.
There are eighteen (18) Officers and Members on the Board of the Global NGO Executive Committee (GNEC). All are elected by entities formally associated with UN DGC. Each term is two years. Nominations for 2022 Elections are accepted Between February 15 and March 31. (See details) Election results will be announced at the Annual Meeting in mid-June 2022.
Board members are expected to attend monthly meeting (now on-line) and to actively serve on at least one Sub-Committee. In the recent past, some have included: Strategic Planning, Development, Finance, Future Conferences and Briefings, NGO Reporter, Nominations and Elections, Outreach & Partnerships, and Communications. Members of the newly formed Advisory Board have no set agenda and voluntarily serve at the request of the President. The new Advisors, including the GNECs longstanding pro-bono attorney, have provided invaluable guidance to our leadership – and we are thankful for it.
The GNEC and its partners will continue to offer leadership where requested and appropriate: in order to support, strengthen and further empower the communications and platforms for NGOs associated with UN DGC.
The Global NGO Executive Committee (GNEC) was founded in 1962 to promote a closer working relationship between the United Nations and the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) associated with it. GNEC acts as a liaison between the NGO community and the UN's Department of Global Communications (DGC). GNEC provides strategic guidance to help NGOs become more effective partners of the UN.
