General Assembly

COPRO is an impartial organism and a non-profit-making organization. 

The General Assembly is the “upper representative“ of COPRO. It consists of effective members and joining members. 

The “effective” members are legal personae that belong to one of the two founder groups. 

The public institutions, that is the representatives of the Flemish and Brussels-Capital Regions, represent 50 % of the votes. They choose the president of the General Assembly.

The building contractors represent 50 % of the votes as well. They choose the vice-president of the General Assembly. At the present time, this group is formed by:

  •   la FBEV- de BFAW (The Belgian federation of building contractors for road works),
  •   the provincial divisions of 
    •  VlaWeBo (Flemish federation of building contractors for road works),
    •  FWEV (Walloon federation of building contractors for road works),
  •   de Bouwunie-infrastructuur (Flemish Union of SME-Construction).

Other legal personae can become joining members of COPRO on proposition of the General Assembly, however without getting the right to vote.
