WFN Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Council of Delegates Meeting 2022

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the World Federation of Neurology (WFN) and Council of Delegates meeting is being held on Tuesday 25th October, 2022.

The meeting is the first in-person AGM since Covid pandemic restrictions disrupted international travel and will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, to coincide with the ECTRIMS 2022 Conference ⧉.  

Online registration for member societies to attend the meeting will open on Monday 5 September 2022.


In March of this year, the Nominating Committee of the WFN invited nominations for the positions of:

  • Secretary General [4-year term] 
    To take office from January 1st, 2023 – Position vacated by Prof. Dr Wolfgang Grisold

    Candidates (in alphabetical order)
    • Prof. Marianne de Visser
    • Dr Steven Lewis
    • Prof. Tissa Wijeratne


  • One Elected Trustee   [3-year term]
    To take office immediately following the council of delegates meeting – Position vacated by Dr Steven Lewis upon the end of his second term of office

    Candidates (in alphabetical order)
    • Dr Minerva López Ruiz
    • Dr Chandrashekhar Meshram
    • Prof. Bo Norrving
    • Prof. Mohammad Wasay


As in the previous 2 elections—2020 and 2021—voting will take place by remote online ballot. This method of voting enables all member societies to vote in the elections, regardless of whether or not they are able to attend the Council of Delegates meeting, but also reduces the impact that adverse conditions, such as differences in time zone or difficulties caused by Covid restricted travel, may have to sound decision-making when voting.

Voting will take place between 3-16 October 2022 before the WFN AGM Council of Delegates meeting.

Further information on how to vote will be sent out to WFN member societies on 5th September together with online registration to attend the AGM.

The results of the voting will be announced during the Council of Delegates meeting.
