World Employment Confederation

Governance

The World Employment Confederation is a non-profit association established under Belgian law. Our constitution establishes the General Assembly, the Board, and the standing committees as main bodies of the Confederation.

General Assembly

The General Assembly is the highest decision-making body, in which each member of the World Employment Confederation has a right to vote. Its roles are:

  • defining the strategy and priorities of the Confederation,
  • reviewing progress achieved on the main priorities,
  • setting the budget and membership fees,
  • electing the Board and reviewing its activities,
  • deciding on membership applications and other membership issues, and
  • amending the constitution if required.

The General Assembly usually meets twice a year.

Board

The Board oversees the day-to-day operations and activities, and the management of the Confederation. This includes:

  • implementation of the Confederation’s action plan,
  • implementation of the budget and financial management,
  • follow-up of applications and membership issues, and
  • consideration of issues to be put to the attention of the General Assemblies.

Board members are elected by the General Assembly. Its composition aims to strike a balance in reflecting the diversity of the World Employment Confederation’s members.
