How we work

Members

Our 51 Members are at the core of the work we carry out at Accountancy Europe. They send experts from across Europe to the Expert Groups that contribute to our projects. Jointly, our Members also form our highest governance body, the Members’ Assembly, meeting 3 times per year. The Members’ Assembly provides high level guidance to our Board on strategy, and appoints and supervises the Board. See our Constitution to find out more about our governance.

Expert Groups

The representatives of our Members participate in our Expert Groups based on their area of expertise. They provide feedback from practice and input on public policy and strategy via physical meetings, conference calls, and by collaborating online.

Board

Our Board supervises and guides our work, and decides on the projects we engage in. The Board acts in the collective interest of Accountancy Europe and of the whole European profession, independently from any particular interest. The Board has 12 members from 11 countries and it is chaired by the President. The President serves a 2-years term.

Team

Our Team runs our projects on a daily basis and steers the work of the Expert Groups in cooperation with their Chairs. Consisting of around 23 people with diverse nationalities and professional backgrounds based in Brussels, the team is led by the Chief Executive who manages and represents Accountancy Europe.
