Cancellation of Session II of 2016 IOE General Council announced for 6 June 2016


Dear Members,

Please be advised that Session II of the 2016 IOE General Council, which had been announced for 6 June, has been cancelled.

This reflects the decision of the IOE General Council on 29 May to endorse the recommendation of the Management Board to align the elections of the board members with those of the Members of the Governing Body, as well as the officers of the board (President, Vice-President for the ILO and Regional Vice-Presidents).

The mandate of the following elected members of the board is therefore extended to the date of the 2017 General Council which is anticipated to take place on Sunday, 28 May (to be confirmed):


  • Africa: Mr El-Mahfoud Megateli and Ms Jacqueline Mugo
  • Americas: Mr Jorge de Regil and Mr Alberto Echavarría
  • Asia-Pacific: Mr Khalifa Mattar and Mr Yogendra K. Modi
  • Europe & Central Asia: Ms Lidija Horvatic and Mr Bülent Pirler


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Linda Kromjong
