SOSCENSA provides a formal and legitimate structure through which non-state actors can engage more effectively with decision makers in government structures and the international community in support of poverty reduction, democracy and peace building.
The General Assembly consists of representatives of each member non-state actor network. It takes all decisions related to the policy of SOSCENSA and deals with regulatory issues. It elects the Board of Directors, the chairman and the vice chairman.
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is the legislative organ of SOSCENSA. Board members are elected by the members of the General Assembly. The Board of Directors provides financial oversight and maintains accountability. It also determines SOSCENSA’s mission and purpose and ensures effective organisational planning.
The Board of Directors is divided into five sub-committees who are responsible for:
Finance and Audit
Lobbying and Advocacy
Social Services Development Committee
Peace building and Conflict Resolution Committee
Capacity Building and Development Committee
The Secretariat consists of the staff who are responsible for the day to day running of SOSCENSA. It is headed by an Executive Director who is appointed by the Board of Directors.
