Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier has been elected as Second Vice President of the International Ombudsman Institute (IOI).

Mr Boshier was selected based on the commitment he has shown to the IOI is his role as Regional President of the Australasia and Pacific Region of the IOI and the contributions he has made to the IOI UN Working Group, both of which have supported the IOI to become an internationally recognised organisation.
Mr Boshier says, “I am honoured to serve the role of Second Vice President.
This election was based on the high performance of my office, and the fact that we are resourced accordingly to enable us to do the work we do in the international space.”
