In order to function as a professional association, UNIVERSITAS Austria needs not only committed people, but also an organizational structure to manage everything involved.
The main body of the association is the General Meeting, referring to all our members. Every other year, the General Meeting elects the Board of Directors, which consists of 10 to 15 volunteers and sets the agenda of the association. The Board of Directors may appoint committees to deal with certain matters in detail.
For disputes within the association, an arbitration tribunal is available.
We have an office for administrative support, which also acts as a point of contact. Our office employees, who are highly dedicated to their work, are not only responsible for the majority of the internal and external communication via phone and email, but also manage the member database, keep the accounts, support the organization of events, and take minutes at our board meetings, among other tasks.
