Meet ELSA International
ELSA International is composed of the International Board, the ELSA International Team and the Auditors of ELSA.
The International Board is the supreme executive body of ELSA. It represents the Association and is responsible for its everyday running and management. It also promotes the aims and supervises the fields of activity of ELSA. The International Board comprises eight full-time officers working at the ELSA Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium. The members of the International Board are elected by the supreme decision-making body of the Association, namely the Council, during its spring meeting for an annual term that starts on August 1st and ends on July 31st of the next year.
Due to the fact that the association, with its tens of thousands members and even more people involved, provides various international opportunities for students and young lawyers, the International Board of the European Law Students’ Association needs an extensive international team of motivated officers, who are well prepared to fulfill various tasks and to ensure the functioning of the association on the international level. Therefore, an International Team of ELSA is appointed to work with and provide support to the International Board. The International Team is made up of directors, assistants & various teams.
The Internal Auditors, two Auditors and one Vice Auditor, are elected by the supreme decision-making body of the Association, namely the international Council, during its spring meeting for an annual term that starts on August 1st and ends with the approval by the Council of the final accounts they have audited. The Auditors examine the accounts of all revenue and expenditure of ELSA and the financial management of ELSA, according to the generally accepted auditing standards.
