The Governance of the Union

"Building capacities of women for change"

THE BOARD

The Union is governed by an elected Board referred to as the National Executive Committee (NEC) that provides strategic direction. The National Executive Committee has desirable competencies to understand and guide in the Unions operation, participate in policy formulation, monitor performance, enhance governance, and take necessary action to support institutional development. The NEC represents the four regions that comprise the 60 communities where we function, and operates through the Women Parish Councils in every community to the grass root women. These Women Parish Councils (WPC) committees are charged with specific tasks and responsibilities in order to provide strategic leadership and direction at community level.

The NEC consists of seven (7) members who are selected representing the regions and sub-Regions of the Union’s areas of operation.
