URI’s primary governing body, the Global Council, is comprised of at least 24 Trustees, who are grassroots volunteers elected from – and by – URI Cooperation Circles. Each URI region selects three Trustees to serve on the Global Council for a four-year term, providing critical governance and oversight of URI’s operations, finances, and mission-related activities. In addition, At-Large Trustees are appointed as needed.
The Global Council is charged with helping guide URI’s fulfillment of its mission, as well as stewarding and supporting its long-term sustainability and strategic growth.
