Executive & Global Advisory Board

ICDR Y&I Executive & Global Advisory Board Members

The Global Advisory Board is the main body in charge of preparing and holding events and conferences. With the supervision of the Executive Board, the Global Advisory Board has the discretion to propose the topic, format, and venue of the events. Each member of the Global Advisory Board is expected to organize at least two events during his/her term in coordination with the Executive Board. The Global Advisory Board members also have an advisory function in the ICDR Y&I decision-making process with a focus on regional network-building through 
(1) encouraging membership in ICDR Y&I, 
(2) raising awareness of ICDR Y&I in the broader arbitration and ADR community and, 
(3) organizing ICDR Y&I initiatives. 
The Executive Board is the ultimate decision-maker for all ICDR Y&I activities, and the Executive Board steers all operations in close coordination with the ICDR. The Executive Board monitors the organization of each event proposed by the Global Advisory Board, and reports to the ICDR on the progress of the events’ preparation and their outcomes, as well as any other ICDR Y&I initiatives.
