The Uganda National NGO Forum Institutional Structure is anchored around three main organs: a) the Annual General Meeting; b) the UNNGOF Board; and c) the UNNGOF Secretariat as presented in the illustration below:
Uanda National NGO Forum Board: The Board is the penultimate governance organ of the organisation. It is composed of 13 persons of whom 11 are directly elected according to the UNNGOF Constitution, 2 are appointed as Independents through an extensive process involving Management, the Board and the AGM, and the 13th Person is the Exectuive Director who is also an Ex-Officio on the Board and Secretary. The Board supervises the Secretariat and ensures that decisions and policy proposals made at the AGM are reasonably implemented. The Board normally meets thrice a year, unless an extra ordinary meeting is convened.
