The main authority of the Development NGO Coordinator is the General Assembly, which meets annually to agree the basic criteria and the lines of action for each year. The General Assembly also elects the individuals to the offices that will represent it before the different authorities where its presence is required.
Given that the General Assembly meets at least once a year, the Governing Board is the executive authority of the Coordinator, which is advised and backed by the decisions adopted by the different monthly territorial Assemblies.
In addition, and to ensure greater effectiveness, team work is the basis for the operations in each territory. These small groups are made up of members of different Development NGOs who work selflessly for the Development NGOs as a whole, currently in the following areas:
- Social and political incidence
There is likewise an Ethics Watchdog Committee. In addition, the Coordinator has an Information Service that deals with the requests from the general public, private and public institutions, the media, educational centres…., along with coordinating and disseminating the talks, seminars or exhibitions organised by the Development NGOs and the Coordinator.
