Organisation and service

To fulfil the linguistic and geographical requirements of Switzerland, the association is divided into 4 regions.

Due to its size, German-speaking Switzerland is divided into two regions. French-speaking Switzerland and Ticino each form a region of their own. Each region appoints a member to the central board as a coordinator. This is our way to achieve cohesion, team spirit and common interests.

Statutes and festival regulations (german/french).
