EFA is governed by a General Assembly. The Assembly’s core responsibility is to ensure that EFA operates in line with its statutes.
Each member country is represented by one voting member and an alternate voting member within the General Assembly, which meets in November each year, at EFA’s annual Skillshare.
It is EFA’s 8-strong Board Directors that direct and manage EFA’s programme of work in accordance with the statutes. The Board serves EFA on a voluntary basis, guided by its President, Vice-President and Treasurer.
As a not-for-profit representative body, EFA is financed through a combination of donations from members and additional national fundraising associations and private individuals. It also receives European Union funding for select specific projects.
