BUP Presidency

From 2016 all BUP National Centres will hold the BUP Presidency for six months according to a rotating schedule. The presidency was introduced in order to decentralize and share responsibilities with the centre and by this establish a formal platform for them to influence the organisation in practice. The holder of the BUP Presidency is responsible for the content and arrangement of some of the BUP's annual events, as well as promotion of the BUP in the own country, along with additional events and activities aimed at strengthening the programme in the country and the region as a whole.
