Organizational Structure

United Nations Association Albania (UNAA) is composed of several bodies.

The General Assembly (“GA”) is the highest decision-making body of UNAA. It consists of all members of UNAA, represented by one vote each. It convenes annually to deliberate on the organizationʼs initiatives and activities, financial activity, membership, and the election of the Executive Board.

The President represents UNAA in relations with third parties. He/she/they coordinate the work of the Executive Board while ensuring the implementation of the decisions of the General Assembly. The President is elected by the General Assembly and serves a three-years term.

The Executive Board is the governing body of the organization that focuses on strategy planning, oversight, and the achievement of UNAA’s mission and objectives. It coordinates the overall work of the organization, drafts/amends UNAA’s programs and oversees the preparation and expenditure of its annual budget. The Executive Board prepares the annual report of the organization and submits it for approval by the UNAA’s GA. It consists of the President, Secretary-General, Treasurer, one representative of the youth chapter. The members of this body are elected at the General Assembly for a three years tenure.

Blueprint is the youth chapter of UNAA. It has been incorporated into the association and operates as an autonomous and transparent entity with its own by-laws. Presently it includes around forty-five young volunteers aged between 16-27 years old who convene bi-annually to deliberate on the chapterʼs initiatives, activities, impact, membership, and the election of the Executive Board. It has been active for more than five years, during which it has implemented numerous endeavors that include, among others the MUN Albania Initiative, the Coffee Talks Series, and most recently Youtube Vlogs, Podcasts, and Movie Nights. *The chapter’s president is an ex officio member of the Executive Board of UNAA.
