ICMYO welcome opportunities to engage with institutions and/or international bodies. The following procedure is
Stage 1 – We send a call out to ICMYO members;
Stage 2 – Members reply to task force;
Stage 3 – Task Force looks through all suggestions and makes sure they are valid. It may make suggestions (based on experience/the profile that the UN/agency wants and also making sure that Members opportunities are spread around);
Stage 4 – Task Force sends all nominations with a suggestions (if relevant) to the ICMYO list;
Stage 5 – ICMYO members confirm through a vote who they want;
Stage 6 – ICMYO sends only the agreed name(s) on to the UN/agency.
In most cases we would look for a turnaround in under a month, but this can be expedited in particular cimstances to a minium of 10 days. In some instances ICMYO members may have already appointed a lead on a particular topic/area and in that instance the name of the lead organisations will be forwarded directly the the UN/Agency.
