Job Vacancy: Secretary General

Constitution and Membership

The CTO is an intergovernmental organisation established by international treaty. The Organisation is governed by the annual meeting of its Council, made-up of one representative appointed by the government of each full member country and chaired by an elected chairperson. At present, 31 Commonwealth countries are full member countries and are directly represented on the Council, while a further eight countries and 10 dependent territories participate in the organisation as Associate National Members.

The Organisation has recently reviewed its Constitution in order to broaden the scope and scale of its activities and to work with a wider range of ICT businesses and international agencies. Several businesses have become associates of the CTO, and memoranda of understanding on future cooperation have been signed with a number of other bodies. The opportunity to extend the CTO’s activities is warmly welcomed by member countries. The Secretary-General and his team always discuss potential new initiatives with organisations interested in working with the CTO on behalf of the citizens and the ICT industries.
