General board member candidates

World Physiotherapy holds elections for its board members as required in accordance with the constitution. The constitution allows for the nomination and election of general board members with “skills, qualifications and knowledge that will complement the attributes of the other board members” for a period of two years.

In September 2021 all member organisations were advised that the board wished to address the following gaps through the election of one new general board member.

At the close of nominations, the following candidates had nominated:
