IDF Europe - Structure


IDF Europe would not exist without its Members. National diabetes associations and their continuous work to raise awareness on diabetes are at the heart of our Federation.

IDF Europe is proud to represent a wide and diverse multicultural network of national diabetes associations representing people living with diabetes, healthcare professionals, researchers and educational institutions.

Regional Council

The ultimate decision maker in IDF Europe is the Regional Council which convenes all IDF Europe Members yearly. The Council reviews the Federation's activities for the past year, discusses and adopts an operational plan for the next year, discusses and approves the budget and elects its representatives in the Board of Management.

Each Country, represented by Members, has from 1 to 6 delegates, the same as for the IDF General Assembly, who represent the country.

IDF Europe Board

The IDF Europe Regional Board is elected every two years by the Regional Council.

The Regional Board is headed by the Regional Chair and Regional Chair-Elect.  All Board Members are elected for a 2-year mandate.

Due to exceptional circumstances (alignment with IDF Board terms) the current Regional Chair and Regional Chair-Elect are serving a 4 year mandate (2015-2019).

The Board meets up to four times a year to review IDF Europe's activities and decide on priority projects and operational plans.
