#Our Committees, Get Involved
We need more executive officers and members who can provide expert advice on specific matters of business, social, economic, technological and cultural initiatives in the developmental process of our homeland.
The executive team find it necessary to create national development and internal working committees to assist in the delivering of its mission and objectives.
Therefore, the organisation relies on its committees/members to develop policies, initiatives and recommendation that will help to move the organisation forward and also to provide the much needed solution in resolving Ekiti State development issues across all areas.
Each committee is chaired by a Head, and committee participation is open to all EDBN paid up members. The committees report directly to the Executive officers. Committees are established on an ongoing and sometimes temporary basis depending on the key needs and policies of the organization.
Bring your project to the table in any of the following areas for homeland development.
You can join any of our committee:* Diaspora Day
* SME Engagement*Welfare*AWARD Day
The committee listed above may be populated as needed with members coming from across the EDBN membership. The Committees is to report progress to the executive team at regular intervals.

Our projects are open to all volunteers, and we work hard to tailor a volunteer program to individual skills and preferences. We do not require any specific skills but look for committed enthusiastic people who are willing to learn, contribute and immerse themselves in our projects.

The central vision of EDBN EUROPE is to bring Ekiti Entrepreneurs and Professionals living in the United Kingdom together and to identify those willing to offer their skills (Education, Information Technology, Health, Economic, science, Administration, Law, Political and Corporate Governance, Management etc.) to assist Ekiti development.
EDBN EUROPE provides the unique opportunity for Ekiti Entrepreneurs and Professionals living in UK to learn to work and collaborate with one another in the task of nation building of our homeland.
We identified gaps and strongly believe that Ekiti Entrepreneurs and Professionals in Europe can make significant contributions towards Ekiti through programs, policies, and advocacy to harness their talents, expertise, and resources for Ekiti's development.
