The Palta annual general meeting is our organisation’s highest decision-making body. Votes are allocated to members on the basis of their membership fee. The Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson or several Vice-Chairpersons, board members and the elections committee are appointed at the annual general meeting. The elections committee brings forward proposals for the AGM, while the Board is mainly responsible for determining our strategic direction and statutory duties under the Associations Act. Board members are elected to serve for one calendar year. The Board can choose to appoint other committees. The work of the committees is directed by the priorities set by the Board.
