At the international level, the IBCM conferences are organised by an International Planning Group. The present members are: Fares Marzone (Italy – Chairman), Paul Joshua (India), Reynald Kozycki (France), Ken Newton (Australia), Kelvin Samwata (Zambia) and Neil Summerton (UK – Secretary).
The International Planning Group is supported by an IBCM International Advisory Group whose current members are as follows: Simeon Havyarimana (Burundi); David Yap (Singapore); Pavel Vopalecky (Czech Republic); John Hodgkinson (New Zealand); Gord Martin (Canada); Bill Coyle (USA); Juan Carlos Ciccone (Argentina); and António Calaim (Portugal). Consultation with the International Advisory Group takes place electronically.
Each IBCM conference is organised in close collaboration with a national committee in the host country.
The conference would not be possible without the financial support which is provided by individuals and foundations in a number of countries to enable participants to attend from countries which have limited resources. If you would like to give financial support for this purpose, please be in touch with the Secretary of the International Planning Group or use the donations function under the 'IBCM payments' button under 'IBCM5 Conference'.
