National Societies Forum

The National Societies Forum acts as the central communication channel between National Societies and UEG.

The forum's main task is to elect the members of the National Societies Committee and the National Societies Representatives to the Meeting of Members. Each National Society is invited to appoint one representative to this board which meets twice a year.
