The members of EUCAP are groups or organisations operating in one or more European countries. They are required to be democratic and to have decision-making bodies where autistic people are in the majority.
Each member organisation elects two people to act as its representatives in EUCAP. The representatives meet once a year at the Annual General Meeting, which holds the highest decision-making power in EUCAP. They elect the members of the Executive Board and determine the plan of action for each year.
The Executive Board (EB) is responsible for the organisation’s finances and general administration, as well as carrying out plans approved by the AGM. All EB members are autistic. Some of them may have public roles, seeking information and conveying the collective views of EUCAP at various events, working groups and committees.
The secretaries, working at the central office in Prague, assist the EB with the practical aspects of running EUCAP.
