Board of Recommendation

The Dutch Expat Foundation and the expatise Centre have a broad base of support. In order to maintain this base of support, the two foundations can rely on patrons from among the international employers, expat associations, governments and market parties. The patrons ensure that the objectives of the Expat Foundation and its expertise centre are upheld and supported in as wide a circle as possible.
