What is the Board?

Eighteen board members (also known as zonal representatives) across five world regions act as mediators between the association’s member societies and governing bodies of WPA.  These are elected roles, voted on every three years at the General Assembly during the WPA World Congress of Psychiatry.

 

Board members play a key coordinating role within their WPA zones. They encourage collaboration among WPA Member Societies in their zone and stimulate their participation in WPA activities; support the dissemination of WPA-related information and educational materials; and assist the executive committee in ascertaining the needs of member societies and the ways in which these needs can be met.
