The SC selects amongst its members one or more institutions to serve as Secretariat of the Alliance (Chair or Co-Chairs). The Secretariat will serve for four years and can be re-elected. The Chair or Co-Chairs of the Secretariat can be removed from their function by the SC with a two-thirds majority vote.
The Secretariat is the legal representative of the MenEngage Alliance and must be legally registered as a Non -Governmental Organization (NGO).
Functions of the Secretariat include:
Some International NGOs and UN agencies serve in an advisory capacity to the Steering Committee and Secretariat. These organizations are invited to the Annual Steering Committee meeting and provide input via other informal consultations during the course of the year. These organizations are invited by the Steering Committee and remain in the capacity of Advisory Committee members for as long both parties (SC and AC member) desire.
