the official body representing rangers around the world


IRF Executive Nomination Forms

The election committee for the International Ranger Federation (IRF) is seeking nominations for the posts of International Officers and Regional Representatives, who together make up the IRF Executive team.

Following many years of hard work and lobbying, the IRF is recognised by the world environmental community, not only for the important role we play, but also as fellow professionals in the field of conservation.

We need people with the commitment and passion to continue this challenge and ensure that rangers are fully involved and their potential properly recognised.  

Successful candidates will need to attend meetings, network widely, lobby appropriately and act throughout in a professional and competent manner.  In International Forums, English – both spoken and written – is used extensively and candidates with a good working knowledge of this language would have a distinct advantage. This does not however preclude native speakers of any other language.

Successful candidates must have:

  • The ability to communicate electronically.
  • Access to email or the internet on a regular (at least weekly) basis.
  • The ability to communicate in English, verbally and in writing.
  • The willingness and capacity to put in a regular amount of time and effort on behalf of the Federation (recommended at least one hour each week).
  • Current membership in an IRF Regular Member Association.

If this challenge inspires you – you may be just the person needed!

Nominations are now being sought for: President; Vice-President; Secretary and Treasurer.

In addition we are seeking one regional representative for each of the seven IRF regions (Africa, Europe, North America, Central America, South America, Oceania and Asia) covered by member associations.

Attached to this message is the nomination form, and the relevant sections from the statutes and standing rules explaning the election of IRF office bearers, and their duties once elected.

Please send your completed nomination form to the IRF Secretary Jewel Johnson at [email protected] on or before 16th September 2019.  Elections will be held at the World Congress Membership Meeting during the 9th World Ranger Congress, 12 – 16 November 2019, Sauraha Chitwan, NEPAL.
