EGPA is a confederation of independent Police LGBT Employee Associations and, in some cases, individual members from across Europe.
It is a matter for each member organisation to decide who represents them on our General Board. The General Board has responsibility for matters constitutional, the election of the Executive Committee (who oversee the day-to-day running of the EGPA) and the direction of policy and work of the EGPA.
Our members participate in the EGPA General Board WhatsApp group where they share information with each other about the work of their local Association, provide examples of good practice of their police forces, interactions with the police and LGBT communities and receive regular updates from the Executive Committee about its work.
Members also meet annually at the gathering of the General Board where important decisions about the work of the EGPA is made and members report on the activities of the national Associations.
There are two types of membership available. One is for Police LGBT Employee Associations from a European country and the second is for individual membership from a European country that currently has no Police LGBT Employee Association and is working towards establishing one.
