IAC terms of office are for three years with a limit of two consecutive terms, when a break in service is required before any potential re-appointment. Council meetings are held once per year in London (usually for two days in March) and a further three times per year via teleconference (usually for 90 minutes in duration). Members are expected to serve as ambassadors in their region and attend local events throughout the year, along with taking part in annual IAC working groups. All IAC members are donors to the School each year.
Each year positions on the IAC will become vacant as members complete their terms of office and the GNC is always keen to hear from alumni interested in joining the IAC. Typically IAC members have a strong history of volunteering for the School and are committed to supporting mutually beneficial relationships between the School and alumni. Since the IAC believes it is important that the Council broadly represents the breadth of the alumni community, each year the GNC analyses the demographic balance of the IAC and produces demographic criteria for forthcoming nominations. In 2018, we will be seeking nine alumni to join the IAC.
