Executive Committee

The Executive Committee, headed by the president of EAPN, is made up of a representative of each national network as well as representatives of European member organisations. It is its responsibility to propose the General Assembly’s (GA) work programme, to execute the GA’s decisions, as well as to appoint a Bureau. In addition, the Executive Committee adopts issue-specific policy papers and decides on lobbying actions.
