Volunteer organization based on the principles of good governance

 

The management- and policy-related organizational structure within Belgian Red Cross-Flanders is founded on two key considerations: the right of volunteers to co-determine general policy and compliance with the principles of good governance.

The right of volunteers to co-determine general policy revolves around a system of tiered democracy in which volunteers are represented by elected representatives. All positions of responsibility within Belgian Red Cross-Flanders are held for a term of four years.

In turn, a combination of efficient and transparent decision-making procedures, clearly defined responsibilities in line with the relevant legal requirements, and involvement of social stakeholders ensures that the principles of good governance are observed.
