World Igbo Congress is an affiliate-based organization and is consequently owned by the people. In accordance with Article VII, Section 7.1 of its constitution, the power to run the organization is held in trust according to the following structure:

  1. Board of Directors: The highest policy making body populated by affiliate representatives
  2. Executive Council: Executive arm of the organization populated by elected members
  3. House of Delegates: Regulatory functions, populated by affiliate representatives
  4. Standing and ad hoc Committees: Strategic projects development and evaluation
  5. Council of Elders: populated by elder statesmen and women of the organization
  6. WIC Foundation Board of Trustees: Populated by men and women of proven track record of integrity and service
  7. The Executive Director and the Secretariat: Responsible for the day-to-day operations.

World Igbo Congress, Inc. and its Foundation are governed by a board of directors (The BOD) with the regulatory oversight of the House of Delegates (The HOD). There are two board members from each affiliate one of which may be the president of that affiliate. A few super affiliates with great populations of Ndi Igbo have three slots. Members of the HOD (The Delegates) also come from the affiliates with one voting right per 25 registered members. An Executive Council comprising Executive Officers and the HOD officers run the affairs of the organization under the direction of the executive Chairman of the Board.

Professor Anthony Ejiofor is the current Chairman of the Board and he is spear-heading the new mission and vision of the organization. Chief Sampson Udeh of Igbo Association of Nashville is the Recorder of the HOD and brings an unparalleled discipline to the leadership corps and grassroots activities of the organization.

World Igbo Congress leadership comprises men and women who understand the circumstances of Igbo people worldwide especially in respect of the unfulfilled hopes and aspirations of the people who emerged from a civil war 48 years ago and are still short changed in terms of the promised rehabilitation, reconciliation and reconstruction. Indeed, they appear to be marked for extermination in the Nigerian polity. WIC leadership is determined to restore the dignity and circumstances of Igbo people through purposeful engagement and connection with the world.
