|The Va’ad Machaneh (Machaneh Executive)|
|The ‘VM’ is the elected leadership of the machaneh. It is made up of the Roshim and Sganim of the shichavot, as well as the Mitbach and Chetz leadership teams. The individuals who make up this body are democratically elected by the Bogrim of the movement. Election to the Va’ad Machaneh is in recognition of one’s commitment and dedication, educational strength, overall ability and leadership skills. This body will be elected by the movement's hanhaggah (national executive) at the end of July.|
