Our Executive Director is the Dean of the Board of Executive Directors.  The Dean of the Board of Executive Directors is by practice the longest serving, full-time Executive Director. 

The responsibilities of the Dean include the negotiation of the terms and conditions of the contract of the President along with the Co-Dean. In addition, the Corporate Secretary consults with the Dean during the process of informal consultations to select members of the Board Ethics and Standing Board Committees.

The Dean also chairs the meetings of the Steering Committee, which is the meeting of Executive Directors with Senior Management to set the Board’s work program and organizes meetings for Executive Directors among themselves or with Management, the UN or other high level experts to exchange views informally. The Dean and Co-Dean of the Board also coordinate with the Dean of the Fund’s Board on matters of mutual interest such as the Annual Meetings, the remuneration of the heads of the two institutions, and corporate governance issues.

Allocation of Votes by Organization

Member countries are allocated votes at the time of membership and subsequently for additional subscriptions to capital. Votes are allocated differently in each organization.

IBRD: Each member receives votes consisting of share votes (one vote for each share of the Bank's capital stock held by the member) plus basic votes (calculated so that the sum of all basic votes is equal to 5.55 percent of the sum of basic votes and share votes for all members).

IFC: Each member receives votes consisting of share votes (one vote for each share of IFC's capital stock held by the member) plus basic votes (calculated so that the sum of all basic votes is equal to 5.55 percent of the sum of basic votes and share votes for all members).

IDA: Each member receives the votes it is allocated under IDA replenishments according to the rules established in each IDA replenishment resolution. Votes consist of subscription votes and membership votes.

MIGA:  Each member receives votes consisting of share votes (one vote for each share of MIGA's capital stock held by the member) plus parity votes,calculated so that the aggregate number of votes of category 1 and category 2 members is the same. Members choose which category they want to join at the time of membership. Category 1 members were originally defined as developed countries and category 2 members as developing countries.
