The advisory board
The International Fact-Checking Network has 6 counselors who represent the geographical diversity of the network. They are pioneers in the development and implementation of fact-checking in their countries and regions. All board members are unpaid.
The Advisory Board's main role is to help oversee the verification process of the code of principles, but it is also consulted on all matters of other decisions that have an international relevance for fact-checkers.
The role of the committee members in applying for the code of principle is fundamental, because once the external advisors issue a recommendation on the applicant, the board votes. The organizations are approved after obtaining four votes in favor.Meet our board
