The KVCV board

Board of directors

Like every association, KVCV has a Board of Directors that was elected by the General Assembly. The Board of Directors meets regularly, about 10 times a year, and sets the policy for the long-term. Important decisions are taken by the Board of Directors.

The General Chairman of the KVCV is also Chairman of the Board of Directors. As a non-profit organization, the association has a treasurer who takes care of the financial policy.

The Coordination Committee 

An essential part of KVCV is the Coordination Committee. Members of the Coordination Committee are: alle members of the Board of Directors and the representatives of all KVCV divisions (as a chairman or delegate). The Coordination Committee meets 2 to 3 times a year and is responsible for the proper coordination in the overall functioning of the association. The Coordination Committee is chaired by the General Chairman. The meetings of the Coordination Committee are a unique opportunity for the representatives of the divisions to meet and organize activities together.

The General Assembly

The General Assembly meets once a year. The members of the Board of Directors, the chairs of the divisions and the honorary members receive a personal invitation.

During the General Assembly, an overview of the activiteit that took place during the past year, the Treasurer-General reports  on the financial situation of the association and proposes the budget planning for the next year. An independent financial auditor approves the financial report. The members present can ask questions.

Whenever a new Chairman and/or Board of Directors needs to be elected, this happens during the General Assembly.

KVCV-divisions

In the overall operation of the KVCV, the divisions and departments play a crucial role. They were established at different times during the more than 75 years of existence of the KVCV, and they began to organizie all kinds of activities.

The divisions organize seminars, congresses, ... about a specific chemical topic. These topics range from the use of a new technique, rules and regulations in the discipline in question, to lectures by leading specialists.

Operation of divisions 

The proper functioning of a divisions is defined by its working group, a group of volunteers who meets regularly and organizes activities. Depending on certain seminars, sometimes smaller working groups are formed by those who feel more involved in the subject matter and have the necessary contacts at national and international level to attract specialists. These smaller working groups report back to the full group.

Each active division has a chairman and a secretary, the larger divisions also have a vice chairman and treasurer.

Many of these groups have now become real friend groups, which makes cooperation even more pleasant and easier.
