The organizational structure of the European Council for Student Affair is typical of a non-governmental and non-profit association.

Each member of ECStA is represented in the general assembly, which meets at least once a year. The members of the general assembly elect the board of management according to the procedure laid out in the ECStA statutes.

The board of management consists of:

  • President
  • Vice-President(s)
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary-General

Terms of office are usually two years. While the President and Vice-President(s) are responsible for outside representation of ECStA’s work and the interests of its members, the Secretary-General is managing and directing the ongoing work of the organization.
