Team 2023

Each board member/ department leader takes the responsibility for one core task area of the federation, which is vital for the federation to flourish.

They can delegate tasks to volunteers, but they are responsible that the tasks for their area getting done.

The members of the Forró Federation elect each January new board members for the year. Representatives from all members can apply to become board members. Max. two representatives from each member can join the board to ensure many members are represented on the board. Of course, everyone is invited to help as a volunteer.

As a Board Member, you commit to contributing at least 1-2 hours a week by participating in working and decision-making sessions.

The enlarged board members are ambassadors who connect the Forró Federation to their region. Enlarged board members understand the situations in the communities of their region, share their insights on current developments or possible struggles (e.g. during our Enlarged Board meetings) and act as supporters of collaboration between Forró initiatives.
