Advisory Board
The Uppsala Rotary Peace Center has an advisory board, which convenes quarterly. The advisory board has two representatives from each class of fellows and is also represented by the director, coordinator, the Host Area Coordinator, and a University representative. The Rotary Foundation asks each Rotary Peace Center to form an advisory board. The board discusses matters related to the daily work and planning of center activities.
