Organization of the Association

The Brussels’ polyglot-association is an a.s.b.l. (Association sans but lucratif). All organizing members are volunteers.

Our association is headed by a president, one or two deputies, a secretary, an accountant and other positions depending on demand. All are members of the Administrative Council that organizes all events and aims to make sure that the events run smoothly.

The conversation director at every table directs the conversations and makes sure that everything proceeds in good order.

A general assembly is held every year where all members are given the opportunity to formulate remarks or make suggestions.  

Our organization is officially recognized by the Ministry of Culture of the Wallonie-Bruxelles Federation.

The association comprises ordinary members, effective members (i.e. members with the right to vote in the assembly, and, foremost, members of the committee and the administrative council) as well as honorary members (members who have greatly contributed to the development of our association).

Our a.s.b.l. regulations and by-laws have been published in the “Moniteur belge” and can be obtained on simple request.
