Board of the Swiss Model Aviation Association (SMV)


The board of the SMV consists of active and experienced model aircraft pilots. Board members are elected by the annual Assembly of Delegates, the final authoritative body and thus the actual General Assembly of the Swiss Model Aviation Association. They receive a small compensation for their work, determined by the Assembly of Delegates, and can settle their expenses in accordance with the SMV Financial Regulations. The work of the Board members is guided by and subject to Board’s rules of procedure. The Board is discharged exclusively by the Assembly of Delegates.

The impact-oriented, central organization and the interaction of the seven management departments with the decentralized regional associations and the technical commissions are reflected in dhe board's organisation.

Ordinary board meetings are held six times a year. The technical Expert commissions F1 to F9 have additional meetings under the leadership of their presidents. These carry out their work together with their team members, responding to the needs of the regional associations or clubs.

The central secretary of the Swiss Model Aviation Association at the headquarters of the Aero Club of Switzerland in Lucerne fulfils central administrative functions and manages the extensive membership system.
