Leadership

REEEP's leadership comprises two bodies: the Meeting of Members and the Governing Board. The Advisory Board provides high-level advice and strategic guidance.

Meeting of Members

The Meeting of Members (MoM) is the assembly of all REEEP Members according to the Austrian Association Act (Vereinsgesetz 2002). The Meeting of Members is convened by the Governing Board and held at least once every two years. It is chaired by the Chair of the Governing Board or another Board member. Amongst other issues, the MoM approves the accounts, acknowledges the four-year strategy, and elects the Governing Board. An overview of REEEP Members can be found here.

 

Governing Board

REEEP’s Governing Board is responsible for the conduct of business in accordance with REEEP Statutes, and holds office for a period of four years. The Governing Board develops and oversees key strategic direction, targets, timeframes and priorities; prepares financial rules and accounting systems; and guides the operations of REEEP’s International Secretariat.
