International Theosophy Conferences Inc. is a platform where Theosophical organizations and all other earnest students of Theosophy meet. This infers that ITC won’t typically function as another Theosophical vehicle, in spreading Theosophy itself. Instead ITC is committed to connect all Theosophists, supporting them in their common cause in the light of the purposes of ITC, which are:
- To maintain the principles of the Modern Theosophical Movement presented by H. P. B. as a living power in the minds and hearts of Humanity, encouraging explorations in the light of her teachings.
- To foster mutual meaningful intercommunication, understanding and respect among the Theosophical mainstreams, stimulating thereby continuous spiritual Unity.
- To be a platform, supporting and sponsoring the annual international Conference of Theosophical Organizations.
- To unite people in sharing the Philosophy of Theosophy, studying and further exploring Religion, Philosophy and Science from a Theosophical Perspective.
Board of directors and officers
ITC is governed by a Board of Directors with a maximum membership of 13 and a minimum of 5. The Board meets monthly via internet. The August meeting is a one-day retreat usually held prior to the annual conference. Terms for all board members are 3 years in length and members are eligible to serve multiple consecutive terms.
The Officers are in charge of carrying out and supervising the decisions of the Board of Directors and maintaining the organization’s compliance with regulatory guidelines. Officers are appointed by the Board of Directors for a period of 3 years.
Members of the Board of Directors are elected by the members of ITC at the Annual Membership Meeting.
The terms for board members are staggered, which means that each year approximately 1/3 of the positions are vacant or up for re-election.
Any person who is a student of a theosophical organization, study group or a non-affiliated theosophist and who is dedicated to the purposes of ITC, is eligible for membership.
Considering that International Theosophy Conferences Inc. is a platform where Theosophical organizations and Theosophists meet, stimulating each other to spread Theosophy in the world, this declaration is meant as a joint statement…
