About Bnei Akiva > Everything About Bnei Akiva
Historically the members of the NPO have been Israelis with a current or past connection to Bnei Akiva. It is proposed that this group be supplemented with some new members to increase the representation of the Diaspora.
The Mazkir must create a budget, which is approved by the members of the NPO and is also monitored on a regular basis by a small committee of the members. In addition this committee decides with the Mazkir on major strategic issues and other important decisions to be taken.
In addition to the office in Jerusalem, each national branch has its own local leadership, and each country has its own Mazkir. The National Mazkir is advised and guided by the shlichim in that locale and they recruit the madrichim required to staff all of the activities of that region. On a day-to-day level each country runs, funds and manages its own activities with overall international coordination via the Jerusalem office on the more significant issues. This is particularly true for the programmes run in Israel, which are planned together with the national branches and then run by the staff in Israel.
