Coordinators

The Committee of the Regions organises its work within six commissions which specialise in different policy areas and prepare the work for the plenary. Each political group nominates coordinators for each commission who take on a leading role in representing the group and organising its participation within that commission. Renew Europe group also has Deputy Coordinators. For more information about these commissions, please visit the main site of the Committee of the Regions.
