On Tuesday November 27, the NFU Management Board meets in Copenhagen to discuss strategies for the European elections 2019, next years’ NFU Conference, future research cooperation, and more.

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

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.

On November 27, the Management Board will discuss strategies before and after the elections to the European Parliament, which will be held on May 26, 2019. Plans and ideas for the NFU Conference 2019 is also on the agenda, along with items concerning NFU’s cooperation with the research community and our work with supporting organising in the Baltic Sea area. The Management Board will also adopt the NFU Budget for 2019 and discuss European regulatory and policy affairs as well as the European Social Dialogues for Bank and Insurance, among other things.
