Members' Council and Committees

The Members' Council is not responsible for the company's daily operations. The SB monitors the Management Board and everything related to the management of the company.

Members' Council instead of the GMM

On 1 January 2019, the Members' Council was formed to replace Royal FloraHolland's General Members' Meeting (GMM). In doing so, the Members' Council has taken over the formal tasks of the GMM. Here you will find the minutes of the General Members' Meetings up to and including 6 December 2018.

Committees of the Members' Council

The Members' Council has four committees, each with its own area of focus:

  • strategy
  • finance
  • members engagement
  • cooperative

The committees examine the subjects within their area of focus. They prepare recommendations and Members' Council decisions. They actively collect people's opinions and requirements or ask experts for advice wherever possible. Final recommendations to the Management Board or decisions are always made by the entire Members' Council.
