The vice executive acts as a link between the communication team (which might focus on internal communication and media relations) and the executive tasks of officially representing the organisation. He also helps with public relations, i.e. opinion scanning and acting as contact person for other networks. In addition the vice executive may also assist with every day tasks of executive delegate.

  • 6 decision about changing the name of BoD


    • executive committee
    • elected board
    • board (inofficial term, while officially sticking to BoD)

None of the suggestions were liked enough. There is the problem that we cannot officially change the name of the BoD until the next GA and that using two different names might confuse members. We decided to brainstorm on the issue in a wider circle (forum) without any rush and with taking into account the mentioned points.
