Transparency International Elects Six Board Members

Elections during Transparency International's 2014 Annual Members Meeting portend massive changes to the movement.  Not only did the members elect a new Chair and Vice Chair, but six of ten directors positions were also contested with only three incumbents running. The elections provided the organization and its members an unusual opportunity to establish its direction for the future.

In the election, the three experienced directors were elected--Incumbent Jeremy Carver from the UK, Sion Assidon from Morocco, past director and Incumbent Elisabeth Ungar Bleier from Colombia first elected in 2011. New to the board are American Mark Mullen from the Georgia Chapter, Emile Carr of Sierra Leone and Venezuelian Mercedes de Freitas.
