Executive Board

GOBLET is run by a 6-member Executive Board (EB) elected by the Full Board. The EB effects the decisions of the AGM, oversees the Foundation’s finances, and coordinates its day-to-day business. All of its members act as GOBLET ambassadors and represent GOBLET in relevant events and other committees.
