UNCMT Association’s social organisation
The UNCMT, like any other association, is run by a team of volunteers, who are elected to the Board of Directors by the Departmental Council.
These 18 members form the Board of Directors that defines the UNCMT’s policy. Eight members elected among them, compose the Committee and one person is elected as the Association’s President, responsible for the application of its decisions.
The Board of Directors appoints the directors of the UNCMT stays, on proposal of the Committee. These Directors are responsible for the setting up and the smooth running of the stays proposed by the UNCMT in compliance with the association’s commitments (human resources, educational and financial management, etc.).
There are also service managers and administrative staff at the head office, who are in charge of implementing on a daily basis the policy defined by the Board of Directors, of managing administrative tasks (planning management, public reception, enrolment, transport organisation, declaration of stays, general accounting, analytical accounting, etc.) and of maintenance of the UNCMT centers.
To complete this organisation, there are also the commissions composed of UNCMT members, responsible for reflecting and making proposals to the Board of Directors on different themes (administrative and pedagogical, financial, material and work, promotional).
