Regional Governing Council

Regional Governing Council

The Regional Governing Council (RGC) is an advisory body to the Trust Funds Board (TFB) responsible for overseeing the MISA National Chapters as they fight to defend and promote media freedom and free expression in their countries.

RGC members are elected by the National Chapters and on behalf of the TFB. The RGC consists of 12 governors: the Regional Chairperson and one governor representing each of the 11 member countries.

The National Governing Council (NGC) members elect a chairperson from among themselves and this person must then step down as chairperson of the National Chapter they represent.
