The Secretary General is a body of the Fundación Gimnasio Moderno, and is also an employee of management and trust, appointed by the Superior Council. Apart from the strictly statutory and legal aspects, the General Secretary of Gimnasio Moderno carries out the functions of a General Secretariat, as it is known in the business world, and of an Academic Secretariat, as it is called in any educational institution. Its main task is to mediate between the community’s strata in administrative, academic and even educational areas, and to be a link between the Principal, Procurator and Vice-Principal, on the one hand, and the Superior Council, the Plenary Chamber and the Body of Electors, on the other.
As guarantor and guardian of faith, the Secretary General coordinates and intervenes each year in the process of electing one third of the members of the Plenary Chamber. He supports the Foundation as a legal entity and the school as an educational institution. He reviews all contracts and agreements and keeps the legal documents of the foundation. It is also responsible for the direct supervision or through external legal advisors, of the pre-judicial or judicial processes in which the Fundación Gimnasio Moderno is involved.
