Member of the board

We are looking for another board member to pave the strategic direction of our association. Currently, the board consists of three members, two of whom are co-presidents.

The work on the board is voluntary, but also requires little time, as the association has an operational management. The board members are elected at our general meetings (AGMs). This usually takes place at the beginning of April each year.
