The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation have announced the reappointment of three current IASB members.

Stephen Cooper (Great Britain) and Wei-Guo Zhang (China) have been appointed for a second five-year term. Their terms in office now end on August 1, 2017, and June 30, 2017, respectively. Paul Pacter (United States) had initially indicated to the board that he wanted to be available for only one two-year term. He has agreed to a re-appointment of six additional months to allow sufficient time for the appointment of a successor. His term now ends on December 31, 2012.

The Trustees are continuing their search for three additional members to fill the existing or upcoming vacancies. Elke Konig stepped down in December 2011 and John Smith will be stepping down in June 2012 after serving the maximum of two five-year terms. In addition, a new board position will be available in July 2012 as the IASB expands its membership to 16.
