The Council comprises one representative, generally the managing partner, from each voting member, and represents the members of BDO International Limited in general meeting. In 2023, we have 110 Council Members. The Council Chair is elected among the existing Council Members by the Council upon nomination by the Global Board. 

 The Council approves the BDO network’s budget, appoints the Global Board and approves any changes to the Articles and Regulations of BDO International Limited. The Council meets at least once a year, during BDO’s Leadership Summit, and more if the Council Chair and/or the Secretary of BDO International Limited consider this necessary or appropriate, or upon request of a certain number of Council Members.
