Board of the Swiss Model Aviation Association (SMV)

Kdt_Lw_und_JetsThe Board of Directors of the SMV is basically formed by active and experienced model pilots working on a voluntary basis and for minimal reimbursement of expenses. The board members are elected on the occasion of the annual presidents' conference, as the ultimate authoritative body and thus the actual general assembly of the Swiss Model Aviation Association, and work according to clear guidelines within the framework of the business regulations of the board. The Board is discharged exclusively by the Presidents' Conference by dechargée.

The impact-oriented, central organization and the interaction of the seven management departments together with the decentralized regional associations and the technical commissions can be seen very clearly in the board model.

The Board of Directors meets six times a year on the occasion of the ordinary Board meetings, the technical Expert commissions F1 to S6 meet additionally under the leadership of their commission presidents. The department heads lead their departments together with the team members in the daily business and situationally depending on the needs of the regional associations or the clubs.

The central secretary of the Swiss Model Aviation Association at the headquarters of the Aero Club of Switzerland in Lucerne administers all administrative traffic as well as the extensive membership system.
