With twenty-two founding civic, secular, religious, professional bodies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in 2000, CODEO currently comprises 42 organizations as we prepare for the 2016 polls (See CODEO Brochure for the list of CODEO member organizations). The CODEO Advisory Board, which has two co-chairs, has been reconstituted with sixteen members (16), composed of representatives of member organizations and selected eminent Ghanaian citizens (See the Profile of CODEO Advisory Board Members in your folders). The Advisory Board acts as the policy and executive decision making body for CODEO. Supported by three standing committees--Recruitment, Training and Deployment, Drafting and Reporting, and Logistics and Procurement--, the Advisory Board manages the day-to-day affairs of CODEO. The Secretariat of CODEO is housed at the Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), which provides technical and administrative support. CODEO’s General Assembly is the platform for all the representatives of the 42 member organizations and has the overall responsibility of regularly reviewing and approving CODEO activities, and, significantly, serves as a pool for the recruitment of CODEO observers.
