The selected leaders include Siddiga Ahmed, Chair (Sudan); Mustapha Laidi, Vice Chair (Algeria); Ram Mohan, Vice Chair (India); Amber Khan, Executive Member (Pakistan); Darma Satty, Secretary (Sudan). The newly elected IAC team will spend the next three months shadowing the current leaders and undergoing training. They will officially take office on July 1, 2019.

In 2008, the Greensboro City Council adopted a resolution that established the International Advisory Committee (IAC) as an advisory committee of the Human Relations Commission (HRC). Their vision is to create a more inclusive Greensboro for members of the international community.
