ICSOBA Regional Ambassadors:

To support its strategic objectives, ICSOBA aims to increase its worldwide visibility and capacity to regularly interact with Bauxite, Alumina and Aluminium players around the world.

For this purpose, ICSOBA aims to deploy a network of regional “ambassadors”.

ICSOBA Regional Ambassadors (IRA) are persons demonstrating the willingness to support ICSOBA future by successfully identifying new Corporate Members as well as contributing to the success of ICSOBA annual conference. There could be several IRA for the same region in order to cover all subjects of forthcoming ICSOBA conference (for example: B&A, Smelting, Academia, …).

ICSOBA Regional Ambassadors demonstrating the willingness to be associated to ICSOBA on the long run and achieving results will be rewarded and incentivised.

ICSOBA Regional Ambassadors (IRA) are proposed to the Board and are appointed by the Board.

Feel free to contact any Board Member to further discuss those positions.
