Advisory Board

Advisory Board

The Advisory Board is the formal advisory body according to VUUR’s statutes. As a small association, a supervisory body is not legally required, but VUUR considers it important to organize itself professionally. That is why the Advisory Board discusses in any case all plans of the board prior to the members’ meetings. It also functions as a sounding board for important administrative decisions. The Advisory Council also has the right to issue unsolicited advice to the board or members itself.

The Advisory Board is appointed by members during the general meeting. They are nominated by the new board and the current members of the Advisory Board. In this way some independence is guaranteed, but also the small-scale and personal character of the association is taken into account. The aim is to achieve a diverse composition of the Advisory Board.
