  • members of Steering Committee and Supervisory Board have the advantage in selection process due to cooperation and maintaining relationships with partner organizations
  • advantage over the other candidates have active regular members, i.e. members of the association with more than 30 volunteer hours per year
  • for final selection, a ranking list with the candidate’s qualifications is drawn up

After selecting the candidates, the Association will:

  • convene at least one joint meeting with selected participants to agree on the responsibilities of the participants, present the guidelines for presenting the Association as well as the previous experience of the members (meeting can be held using modern communication channels over the Internet)
