Council members

The Council acts as a second chamber and transmits national interests and specificities to the European level. National assemblies elect its members (all IFOAM Organics Europe’s members of a given Member State or EFTA country). Our Council consists of one Council member and two Deputy Council Members from each EU country at most. The Council elects a chair and one vice-chair among its Council members/deputies for two years in its first meeting following the General Assembly.

 

For a list of former Council members, please read our annual reports.
