ICC YAF is headed by the Global Coordinating Committee (GCC) and based at ICC’s Global Headquarters in Paris. The GCC coordinates ICC’s seven YAF regional chapters, and is responsible for selecting the Regional Representatives and overseeing general coordination between the regional chapters.

The seven Regional Chapters include:

  • ICC YAF — Africa
  • ICC YAF — Middle East and Turkey
  • ICC YAF — North Asia
  • ICC YAF — South Asia
  • ICC YAF — Europe and Russia
  • ICC YAF — Latin America
  • ICC YAF — North America

Each Regional Chapter is organised as follows:

  • the Regional Director / Head of Chapter
  • the ICC YAF Representatives

The Regional Director/Head of Chapter works with the GCC to select the Regional Representatives nominated for a two-year term.

Representatives operate semi-autonomously with the guidance of their Regional Director to ensure that the Regional Chapter achieves its goals. Each Chapter is in charge of promoting and developing its designated region’s network of young practitioners and organising events.
