Our association structure

This is how we are organized

ROOTS & ROUTES Cologne e. V. is in many ways anything but “normal” … formally, however, we are first a very classic registered non-profit association. That is, there are:

  • club members (currently over 50), who meet once a year for the general meeting. The general meeting is in the highest position in an association and has the final say in association decisions. It elects …
  • … the board (currently 5 members), which controls the association between general meetings. The board sets …
  • … the club team (currently 5 people), who take care of the day-to-day business.
