Once a year the Bundesverband Naturkost Naturwaren (BNN) invites its members for a General Assembly. All producers, wholesalers and retailers who are a member of BNN meet to discuss current topics, take common decisions, accept the Annual Report and give approval of the actions of the Management Board. Furthermore, the General Assembly chooses the Advisory Board and the Management Board of BNN. Ultimately, the different branches of the association have the opportunity to have separate exchanges before or after the main meeting.
The General Assembly, taking place in different locations throughout Germany, is also a platform for exchange of information and opinions. Along other program points, guest speakers are welcomed or current issues are treated in panel discussions. Part of the two days of the General Assembly is an evening event which offers opportunities for networking and informal exchange.
