Administration Board

The Administration Board of Reporters Without Borders consists of 25 governors who are elected by secret ballot of the members of Reporters Without Borders at the organization’s Annual General Assembly. Any active member who is up-to-date with his or her membership subscription can be a candidate for membership of the Administration Board.

The members of the Administration Board meet at least four times a year. The Administration Board oversees implementation of the overall courses of action adopted at the Annual General Assembly. It sets goals and determines the activities that should be carried out.
