( From 1st December 2013 until 30th November 2015 )
The ISWL Council Members are elected
for a two year period.
All have equal voting rights and status and are currently
supported by Three Vice Presidents, who are actively involved
with all Council activities in an advisory and non voting capacity.
Vice President's are appointed for
Life and will have previously given
great service to the League in several posts over many years.
All VP and Council posts are held by
unpaid Volunteers, who pay their
own expenses, in order to keep membership costs as low as possible.
Most council members hold more than
one post and all work hard
to maintain the traditions of the International Short Wave League.
