ILGA Secretariats Questionnaire

About the Secretariats:

Presently, the ILGA board includes three secretariats, including an intersex secretariat, a trans secretariat, and a women’s secretariat. These positions are elected from the full membership during the World Conference for a term of 2 years, and report to the Board.

Secretariats are tasked with being ILGA’s experts on key thematic issues. This is accomplished though the provision and development of research, advocacy, and civil society engagement. Secretariats are also expected to work closely with the board as necessary.

This survey by the Co-Secretaries General of ILGA aims at getting feedback from ILGA members and non-members in relation to the three secretariats of ILGA.

Please fill in the survey before December 15th, 2015!
