The General Assembly (all member CEOs and Senior Leaders) meets in the Spring and Autumn to set and direct our strategic direction. Vital relationship building and networking takes place at these meetings.
The General assembly elects an Administrative Council whose role resembles that of a Board. The Administrative Council implements the decisions of the General Assembly between meetings.
Council members are
- Chris Lukkien, ZOA (Chair)
- Andy Pask, Cord (Vice-Chair)
- Irén Frändå LM International (Treasurer)
- Anne Haverinen, Fida
- David Verboom, Medair
Member-led working groups, which are issue-focused, design and realise the specific activities of the network.
Dr. Tabeth Masengu
The network is facilitated by a Brussels-based secretariat represented by Ruth Faber (CEO) and Dr Tabeth Masengu (Advocacy Coordinator).
The Secretariat plays three main roles:
Building connections between members on issues that matter to them through the programme activities.
Assisting members and their partners via data collection, analysis, and sharing information on policy and funding opportunities.
Representing the network towards the European Union Institutions and the regional and global networks we are affiliated with.
