Our ownership structure

Member Organisations and Board of Directors


Nine Catholic grassroots organisations from all over Austria sustain HORIZONT3000. These member organisations provide the capital resources, and it is their employees who fill the seats in our general assembly and board of directors.

Board of Directors

The board of directors is the governing body of HORIZONT3000. It is elected by the general assembly and assembles at least four times a year. At least three and a maximum of six member organisations are represented in the board of directors (currently six).  Some of the responsibilities of the board of directors are to appoint the executive board, pass resolutions on budget and the annual accounts, advise the general assembly and supervise the executive board.

General Assembly

The general assembly is composed of representatives of our member organisations and is committed by the statutes to convene at least once a year when called upon by the board of directors. Usually, it assembles twice a year. Some of its responsibilities include electing the board of directors, determining the membership fee, adopting the budget, approving the annual accounts, changing the statutes and resolutions regarding the vision, mission, and strategy of HORIZONT3000.
