INAS is the International Federation for Athletes with Intellectual Impairments. It is a member of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and represents the interests of athletes with an intellectual impairment within para-sport worldwide. INAS organises an annual programme of regional and world championship competition in 15 sports together with the four-yearly INAS Global Games - a multi-sport event attracting up to 1000 of the world's best athletes with an intellectual impairment. We also manage the eligibility process for athletes wishing to compete within the classification group and promote public and media awareness of sport for people with an intellectual impairment.

INAS is registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation in the UK and is supported by a growing membership (currently around 80 national organisations around the world) representing more than 300,000 athletes.

The organisation is managed by the Governing Board, a group of experts elected by the membership who meet twice a year to review progress and determine overall strategy. The Board are supported by a number of committees including the Sport Committees (responsible for delivering the INAS sports and events programme), Eligibility Committee (responsible for managing the athlete eligibility process) and Anti-Doping Committee (responsible for promoting drug-free sport).

INAS is managed on a day-to-day basis by its Executive Director who is responsible for all organisational and financial management, and the successful delivery of the INAS strategic plan.

Following a review of Board skills and needs, the INAS Governing Board are seeking to appoint up to two people who can help drive and guide our income generation activities. Working closely with the Executive Director, you will have the experience, networks and influence to lever significant new investment into a growing international not-for-profit organisation.

INAS has taken significant steps in recent years - with your support and influence, you can help us build on that success and take the organisation to the next level, working with many more athletes in many more nations.
