In order to achieve a more balanced representation of all regions of the world within the Board, and in particular in order to benefit from their expertise on heritage and professionals in the Middle East and North Africa, the Board has invited Mohammad Yosof Al-Aidaroos (ICOMOS Saudi Arabia) and Khalid El Harrouni (ICOMOS Morocco) to join it until the next Triennial General Assembly in 2020 as invited experts.
