3. Governance

GBUS operates under a three-tier governance structure comprising the General Body, Executive Committee (EC), and Advisory Council. The EC, elected or selected every three years, oversees the day-to-day operations, and the Advisory Council provides valuable guidance for the benefit of the organization and its target population.
