The Executive Board and Council manage the community’s affairs

The 17 members of the Council are elected every four years, and the five Executive Board members are chosen from among them. Both the Council and the Executive Board work on a voluntary basis.

The Council and Executive Board determine the tasks and direction of the community. The Board represents it publicly, in numerous private and municipal institutions and foundations, for instance.

Council assemblies
