Secretary-General / Secretariat
The Operational Secretariat, consisting of the Secretary-General and eventually other staff members of IPC, is the operational centre of IPC. It evaluates and initiates programs, handles membership files, records and manages finances, and protects and promotes the identity of the organization. The Secretary-General takes part in the meetings of the Executive Board without right to vote.
The Executive Board elected Dr. Thiago Leitão de Souza from Brazil to be Secretary-General of the organization and mandated him for the guidance of the operational Secretariat.
