The InterForce central central working board, normally known as FU, is the coordinating body between the yearly committee meetings. They normally arrange three yearly meetings, one in the first, one in the second and one in the fourth quarter of the year. The business council checks up on regional activities and discusses other cross cutting topics in relation to InterForce.
The central working board consists of the chairmanships from the six regions and InterForce Greenland (meaning the regional chairmen and the military coordinators), the chief of InterForce’s secretariat, Finn Winkler, and the civilian chairman of the InterForce committee.
InterForce is divided into six regions plus InterForce Greenland.
In each region and in InterForce Greenland, a local civilian business leader is appointed as the chairman. Furthermore, each region has a military coordinator from a military duty station in the area.
The chairman is the head of a regional business council, consisting of business leaders and military leaders whose task is to spread the word about InterForce.
Every region has a regional ambassador who is typically an officer of The Reserve. He or she is the head of a network of InterForce ambassadors who goes to visit companies to talk about InterForce. InterForce Greenland doesn’t currently have a corps of ambassadors.
If a company signs up to be a member of InterForce, it’s also the InterForce ambassadors who visit the company to hand over an InterForce shield as a thanks for the support.
