Members on the Global Advisor List are Honorary by Law and by basic legal statues can not make any legal decision for the GAFM. Also Faculty or Board status is purely an Award Status and Recognition of Academic Excellence, Life Service, and Research. Members may nominate faculty to the board of advisors and faculty members have rights to offer amendments for the innovation of standards for GAFM . Faculty members are in no way considered to be faculty of the GAFM except within the limits of an Honorary or Emeritus Faculty Award Recognition. They are simply recognized faculty members of Select Universities Worldwide that have been unanimously approved by the Chair to receive honors from GAFM . Advisory or honorary advisors and members can not speak for the company by law, but rather US laws and statutes govern who may legally speak for a US company such as directors or managers. The legal location of the Global Certification Standards Advisory Council is based in Italy with legal offices in the USA. All intellectual property owned in the USA.
