Structural reforms of the IDS

We are proud to announce that with date June 2016 the IDS counts more than 10.000 members worldwide The steadily increasing number of members requires structural changes and reforms of our statutes: During the last IDS Meeting in March 2016 in Washington, the Executive Board of Members discussed and decided a new procedure concerning the election of IDS Country Representatives: IDS Members are invited to actively elect their future IDS Country Representatives via online election. We are currently preparing the necessary platform for the election. In the meanwhile, we ask you to invite colleagues from your countries to become IDS Members as the number of Representatives per country will depend on the total number of IDS Members of the country, respectively.
