Each Holsteiner breeding district holds a general assembly at least once a year. The breeding district assembly deals with the following matters:
- election of the breeding district board (chairperson, deputy chairperson, secretary and treasurer)
- election of Holsteiner Verband delegates according to the Verband rules and bylaws
- discussion of Holsteiner Verband topical matters and affairs
- discussion of breeding district matters and affairs
Elections are held every four years.
The delegates elected by the breeding districts meet at the delegate assembly in Neumünster twice a year.
