Formal bodies

    The formal bodies of the UBports Foundation are: 

    1. The Board of Directors (or "BoD"). The Foundation's Board of Directors is the main administration of the Foundation's projects and teams. Board members are the foundation's judicial and extra judicial representatives.

    2. The Membership Committee (or "MC"). The mission of the MC is to administer membership applications and renewals, and to oversee election of the BoD.

    3. The Board of Trustees  (or "Members"). The Board of Trustees consists of all people actively contributing to the Foundation's projects. To be acknowledged as a member you need to meet the criteria defined in our statutes and apply for membership using our application form.

    Other entities and officers

    There are some entities to help the BoD to further the foundation's projects, but they are not formal/official bodies of the foundation:

    1. The Advisory Board (or "AB") provides a forum for organizations providing a qualifying level of financial or other support (as determined by the BoD). The AB meets up with the BoD and provides advice. 

    2. Supporting Members  are natural persons and legal bodies, who, through their membership, declare their support for the Association’s purposes and aims, while refraining from voting rights and the exertion of the active members’ right to participate in the general assemblies. Legal bodies choose a representative to exercise the remaining rights and duties.

    3. Financial contributors  support the Association's purposes and aim primarily through financial and/or material contributions. If desired, their names will be published on the Association's website, and they have the right to participate in the general meetings. They have no voting rights.

    The BoD may appoint officers for administration or daily business of the Foundation.
