This is a list of members of the International Olympic Committee. According to the Olympic Charter, the members of the IOC "represent and promote the interests of the IOC and of the Olympic Movement in their countries and in the organisations of the Olympic Movement in which they serve". Currently there are 90 members, 36 honorary members and 1 honour member. Jacques Rogge is the Honorary President.
The chairperson of an international organization, who represents an Olympic sport (e.g. the chairman of the athletics IAAF), is represented in the IOC "ex officio" (i.e., because of that position).
- Athlete's commission members are elected to eight year terms.
Most honorary members are former members who, after finishing their terms of office, are made honorary members.
