How we work

EUFORES has undergone an intense and successful reform process in 2008. The new Charter developed by the EUFORES Secretariat has been approved by its General Assembly in September 2008 and applies as of January 2009. EUFORES reformed its charter in order to better reflect and support EUFORES’ goals and activities.

Structure of EUFORES

The General Assembly is the organisation’s main decision-making body and is made up of all the full members. Among others, its responsibilities are the approval of activity reports and budgets.


The Board of Presidents, the organisation’s governing body, consists of three Members of the European Parliament (the President and the two Vice-Presidents) who are appointed by the General Assembly.


The Secretary General is in charge of the day-to-day operations of the organisation.
