MUNA+ Management Board

Get to know the decision makers and founders of MUNA+.

Who we are

MUNA+ is run by a voluntary Management Board, whose members are elected every two years by the general member assembly. The main task of the board is to ensure that all activities of the association comply with laws and regulations and that MUNA+ operates in a financially stable manner. In addition, the Board sets medium and long-term strategies and promotes and manages key projects. We are particularly pleased that two of the founders are still part of the board. Thus, the MUNA+ DNA is still strongly present in the daily decisions.
