Our national board consists of seven members, each of whom has specific tasks and responsibilities. Terms last two years, which is relatively long for a youth organisation and allows the board to offer more experience and stability to the everchanging group of youngsters they oversee.
The board is chosen by and subject to the collective will of our members, who come together for a general meeting twice a year.
