Current I.S.W.L. Council members

( From 1st December 2021 until 30th November 2023 )


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.
