Special Advisors to the SSC

There are a handful of individuals who go beyond the extra mile, to regularly invest their time and energy into the SSC. As defined in the SSC bylaws, “the Chair of the Commission may appoint individuals as Advisory Members when they are in a working relationship with the SSC during the intersessional period”. 

A new term – “Special Advisor to the SSC” – has been agreed for these Advisory Members under the current Chair’s Office. For the 2021–2025 IUCN quadrennium, the SSC Chair has appointed three Special Advisors to formally recognize their continued dedication and invaluable contributions to the work of the SSC.
