About the Micronesian Islands Forum (MIF) Secretariat

The Micronesian Islands Forum (MIF) Secretariat was originally named the “Micronesia Center for a Sustainable Future” and was created to serve as the Secretariat of the “Micronesia Chief Executives’ Summit” (MCES).

This organization had a wide spectrum of functions, to include Secretarial duties to the MCES, but also sub-regional development responsibilities under its strategic plan.

When the Leaders decided to reboot and change the name to the Micronesian Islands Forum, they chose to also change the name of its Secretariat to not only simplify its functions and to limit it to Secretarial duties, but to match the name of the Mother organization of Micronesian leaders.

What the MIF Secretariat Does

The MIF Secretariat is the Implementation arm of the Micronesian Islands Forum, working with jurisdictional members to implement the goals and objectives, as well as directives of the Leaders of the MIF, as enunciated at the Annual Meeting through the promulgation of a MIF Communique, Letters and Resolutions.

The MIF Secretariat meets twice a year with Designated Representatives of each Jurisdictions Leaders to follow through on these initiatives and to prepare for the Annual Meeting.
