The organisation of CercleS is based on three pillars: the General Meeting, the Co-ordinating Committee, and the Executive Committee.
The General Meeting
Which meets at least every second year, determines the overall policy of the Association. It ratifies the election of the President, approves standing orders and the reports of the President, Secretary and the Treasurer. It determines the strategy by which CercleS shall develop its plans for action.
The Co-ordinating Committee
Is responsible for general management of the affairs of CercleS. It directs the actions of the Executive Committee and supervises the latter’s administrative activities. It approves accounts and annual budget. It draws up proposals for standing orders, or amendments to the same, for submission to the General Meeting. The Co-ordinating Committee consists of the Chair persons of all Full Members and additional representatives selected by Full Members in proportion to the size of their membership as well as of the President, Secretary General and Treasurer of CercleS or their deputies. The last Co-ordinating Committee meeting was held in September 2016 in Cosenza. Previous Co-ordinating Committee meetings have been held in Nancy (2015), Fribourg (2014), Barcelona (2013) and London (2012). You can find information about our Co-ordinating Committee.
