The General Assembly represents all NEREUS Full and Associate Members.
It is the key decision-making body and supreme power of the organisation. NEREUS being a network of regions, Full Members play an essential part in it and have full voting rights, whilst Associate Members may only express views in a consultative role and participate in the General Assembly in a non-voting capacity.
The General Assembly is convened once a year and:
- elects the members of the Management Board, its President, Vice-President(s) and Treasurer;
- decides on the admission and exclusion of members, both Full and Associate;
- approves the budget and annual accounts, together with the annual membership fees, the work programme and activity reports.
(for more information on the General Assembly please see articles 11-14 of the NEREUS Statutes)
