The Advisory Panel look after the ‘Do’ and other ‘non business’ aspects of Taekwon-Do within International Taekwon-Do. The Advisory Panel is effectively the custodian or guardian and ‘voice’ for the art – headed by the most senior Masters within the organisation who are considered the experts in ITF Taekwon-Do and worthy of this portfolio.
The Advisory Panel also acts as Advisor or Consultant to the International Taekwon-Do Board in matters related to the art. The Advisory Panel would also have a close working relationship with the CEO (and Operations Executive) who collectively would be the conduit between the members and the Board on an operational level.
The purpose and function of the Advisory Panel is to:
The Advisory Panel will comprise of the most senior practitioners of ITF Taekwon-Do who hold the rank and title of Master. The panel would have three Masters, one of whom would be chosen as the chairperson - which would be on a two year rotational term.
Additional members for the Advisory Panel may be chosen from other Masters in rank order or similar. However, it is envisaged that this would be reviewed on an annual basis to determine the need for additional members or retain the status quo – this would be at the discretion of the Advisory Panel.
The ‘term in office’ for members on the Advisory Panel is ‘open ended’ and the positions are ‘non votable’. Any member of the panel can chose to resign or step down by mutual agreement, however, only if a suitable replacement is sought and without compromising the day to day function of the Advisory Panel.
