Board of Trustees

The presidents of WWF Hungary’s Board of Trustees are Andreas Beckmann, Roland Csáki and Katalin Szomolányi. 

Board of Trustees’ meetings

WWF Hungary is part of the international WWF Network, it belongs especially to the Central and Eastern Europe Regional Office, committed to make detailed professional and financial reports for the office. As a result, some members of our Foundation’s Board of Trustees and Supervisory Board are foreign citizens. If they are unable to attend the meeting in person, the foreign citizens may participate in the English meetings virtually, via video conferences in accordance with the Hungarian legislation.  From 2018 onwards, we would like to ensure our transparency by presenting in a comprehensible way our annual achievements approved by the Board of Trustees. We would like to provide a more concise content, created in a more diverse and interesting way than the mandatory public benefit report.

The next meeting of the Board of Trustees will be held: 8 May 2020 at 10.00am at WWF Hungary Foundation’s office.

Supervisory Board:

The member of the Supervisory Board is Jean-Paul Paddack.
