The AI-Secretariate, see http://www.anarchy.no/wscifa.html is elected by the paying, full, members among the about 2000 networkmembers/subscribers, groups and individuals, of AI, of which about 500 are in the Nordic countries. It has for the time being 20 members, working parttime for the secretariate. It is autonomous and a purely co-ordinating secretariate, with no political power or authority. It is located in Oslo, Norway, but has also a broader network with contacts using e-mails etc. for communications. The AI-secretariate has its root back to the Nordic IFA-secretariate, elected and mandated by the first Northern AI/IFA congress in 1982, see http://www.anarchy.no/mandate.html and http://www.anarchy.no/ifadok.html. There is no leader of the secretariate, the members work horizontally organized, but with somewhat different mandates, decided by the secretariate collectively. The AI-secretariate has freedom within a framework decided by congresses, and is not a central committee, but purely an advising organ. Some of the members use nick-names for privacy and anonymity reasons.
For the time being the members of the secretariate are P. Johansen, L. Jakobsen, S. Olsen, A. Quist, H. Fagerhus, M. Solberg, L. Wilberg, A. Tellefsen, L. Blom, E. Magland, G. Johnson, R. Gustavsen, A. Kristoffersen, S. Anderson, T. Henriksen, V. Henriksen, H. Goldberg, M. Goldberg, H. Sandberg and E. Akselsen. Accounting for networkmembers/subscribers of groups, the total number of persons connected to the network of AI broadly defined, is estimated to somewhat more than 50 000 world wide, of which about 20 000 are in the Nordic countries. The www.anarchy.no has for the time being somewhat more than 15 000 visitors and about 50 000 hits per month.
The Anarchist International (AI/IFA) is more of a loose network than an organization, but is also rather firm. The AI-Secretariate, a.k.a. AI-Secretariat and WSC-IFA, holds also the Secretariats of the ANORG, FICEDL, AISC, GAIAN-NETWORK, GGS, FABS FANCLUB, IIFOR, PGU & THE fb/IJ@/IJOR EDITING GROUP and for all anarchy.no divisions of the fb/IJ@/International Journal of Organization Research-IJOR-Group of Companies/Organizations a.k.a. in Norwegian fb-IJOR-Konsernet, National, Northern and Global, with Headquarter in 0680 Oslo - Norway, and with public Organization Registration Number 970261427 in Brønnøysund-registeret and postal address: fb/IJOR-Group P.O.B. 4777 Sofienberg N-0506 Oslo - Norway.

SOURCE OF ALL PICTURES: THE IIFOR ARCHIVES, SEE http://www.anarchy.no/iifor.html. ALL OF THE PICTURES ARE FROM THE 1980-IES, EXCEPT THE ONE OF H. FAGERHUS, WHICH IS QUITE NEW. THE REASON FOR MAINLY USING RELATIVELY OLD PICTURES IS THAT MOST OF THE AI-SECRETARIATE WANT SOME PRIVACY AND ANONYMITY. H. FAGERHUS IS AN EXCEPTION SINCE HE HAS APPEARED ON TELEVISION ETC. AND THUS IS MORE OF A PUBLIC PERSON.
