Governing Bodies

HUMANE is governed by two bodies, the Executive Committee and the Round Table:


The original planned name for HUMANE was the European Round Table of senior administrators. We have retained this name, the Round Table for the General Assembly of HUMANE.

Each participating country has at least one place, with additional seats depending on the number of members in a given country:

  • 8 members = 2 seats
  • 24 members = 3 seats
  • 40 members = 4 seats

The members of the Round Table are elected by national colleagues, for periods of 2 years. The Round Table has one annual meeting which takes place before the Annual Conference in June.

The Round Table Chair is Marianna Bom (FI).

To contact any of HUMANE’s Executive Committee or Round Table Chair, please email the Secretariat


The Executive Committee, the Board of HUMANE,  is made up of nine seats, including the HUMANE Chair. Eight of these are taken by Round Table members representing constituencies based on geographical and cultural groupings of the member countries.

The Executive Committee meets 3 times per year.
