The key bodies of the governance structure are:Strategy Board
The European Office strategy board meets 2-3 times a year. It brings together representatives of seven WWF National Organisations in Europe plus WWF International. It is currently chaired by Lovisa Hagberg of WWF Sweden. Other members include WWF Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, United Kingdom and the Danube-Carpathian office in Austria.
The strategy board has advisory responsibilities for the running of the office and oversees strategy and implementation plans but does not have formal decision making powers. It is convened twice a year.
The General Assembly
The General Assembly is the legal decision-making body of the European Policy Programme and the accountable committee to the Belgian authorities for the proper and transparent administration and functioning of the office. It is comprised of one organisational member (WWF International) and four individual members.
The General Assembly elects the members of a Management Board, its officials (President, Vice-President(s) and Treasurer); it approves the budget and annual accounts together with the work programme and activity report. It is convened once a year. The Management Board appoints the Secretary General, and in practice has the same membership as the General Assembly with one member less.
