Structure of VS

VS has a very democratic structure. During 2005 and 2006, community meetings were held in over 700 villages in the Eastern Cape where betterment removals had taken place. The communities elected a committee of five or six people to represent them.

Each Village Committee (VC) elects two representatives to a District Committee (DC).  Each district elects representatives to the Provincial Committee (PC).  The PC is the political head of VS. It is where strategic decisions are made.

As a registered non-profit company, VS has a Board of Directors.  The Board is not elected by the PC, but by the membership who are mandated to vote at the Annual General Meeting. The Board is a governance structure.
