YFU's Global Governance
YFU consists of 55+ independent Member Organizations. To keep us together on international level, we have an international board with members, representing all the regions of our community, to provide strategic and governance leadership and oversight of YFU. Comprised of both National Directors and National Board members as well as independent global volunteers, the International Board has expertise from non-profit, business, international relations, law and education. Their work is conducted through regular Board meetings and through the work of several internal committees. The International Board is elected by and accountable to the global membership of YFU which meets bi-annually for the General Assembly and International Conference.
