ISTH Council
Share |

The Council is the governing body of the ISTH. It authorizes and exercises all corporate powers of the Society and oversees all activities.

The Executive Committee is a subset of the ISTH Council. It provides executive direction to the activities of the Society in between Council meetings.

The Society’s Bylaws empower the Council to establish committees that recommend to the Council policies, programs and actions related to their areas of expertise and responsibility. The committees also implement recommendations that the Council approves. Council committees comprise Council members as well as non-Council ISTH members.

All regular members of the ISTH, regardless of where they live, can be nominated and elected to the Council. Council members serve six-year terms and may serve up to two non-consecutive terms, with at least two years elapsing in between terms.

Every two years, members of the Society elect five of their peers to the Council, replacing one-third of elected Council members. Council members serve for a term of six years. Find a list of past Council members here.

The Council also has ex-officio voting and non-voting members who are members by virtue of holding another office with the ISTH, as mandated by the Society’s Bylaws.
