There are differences between the associations whether international affairs are handled by one or several persons, whether the board has a member in charge of international affairs and whether the person in charge of international affairs has other obligations in addition to one’s position. In any case, the association appoints one member to the international committee, preferably one from its board. Acting in the international committee is part of the obligations of their position.
