SpaandanB Executive Committee

The main organizational body of SpaandanB is its central Executive Committee (EC). The founding members and individuals chosen by the founding members constitute the initial executive committee. Addition and deletion of members to the EC body is guided by SpaandanB’s constitution. The EC takes all the policy related decisions and directives, controls and implements all activities of SpaandanB outside of Bangladesh. EC appoints a country director in Bangladesh who manages all activities inside Bangladesh. The administration office of SpaandanB-US is made up of President, General Secretary and Treasurer, who are elected bi-annually by the EC members from within the EC.
