NFU Management Board meets in Copenhagen

On Thursday September 19, the NFU Management Board meets in Copenhagen to discuss Sustainable finance, European regulatory and policy affairs, future research on compliance and more.

The NFU Management Board consists of eight representatives from the NFU member unions who normally convene four times a year. The meeting rotates between the NFU affiliates, and this time it is Finansforbundet’s (DK) turn to host the meeting.

Items on the agenda for the Management Board to discuss on September 19 are sustainable finance, plans for an NFU Policy Affairs Forum to discuss branch and sectoral policy issues and NFU’s policy and research work on compliance. The Management Board will also discuss European regulatory and policy affairs as-well as the European Social Dialogues for Bank and Insurance, among other things.

The NFU Management Board is responsible for overseeing the political and strategic direction of NFU in between the Union Council meetings, which are held biennially. In addition to approving budgets and plans for activities, the Management Board is a forum for building knowledge, exchanging experience, and coordination among the NFU member unions.
