Members organisations of NYCI can nominate members of the International Advisory Committee (IAC). The IAC meet throughout the year providing a forum for NYCI’s international representatives to share information and develop common strategies. Members are kept informed of all relevant issues and developments as well as opportunities for participation at international level.
The IAC advises and make proposals to the Board of NYCI on international policies and activities and facilitates and promotes the involvement of member organisations in international activities.
The purpose of the IAC is to coordinate international activities and policies within the Company. The Chairperson of the International Advisory Committee will be elected at a full session of the Council Assembly, following nomination by member organisations, and will be a member of the Company Board. Membership of the International Advisory Committee shall be open to all member organisations and the Company representatives to both the European Youth Forum and Léargas.
