LAG has the following main bodies: the Assembly as the supreme body of governance, the Council as a decision-making body, the Supervisory Board, the Manager, who is the administrative manager and legal representative of  LAG, and the Finance Department of the Governor. The Assembly comprises all members of LAG: the Council has 10 members, the Supervisory Board 3 members, the manager is Development Centre Litija. The Development Council has appointed Željko Savič from Dol pri Ljubljani and Franci Rokavec from Litija as President and Deputy President.

Under the leadership of the manager, LAG prepared and adopted its own development strategy for the period 2007-2015.  When implementing development strategy, the key principle we follow  is a common development vision of the area which arises from characteristics and needs, as well as opportunities of the area:

»To provide vitality of the countryside within the area of 'The Heart of Slovenia' and its sustainable growth by using innovative approaches in the exploitation of existing potentials«.

The task of LAG is to provide funds for the execution of its local development strategy and to make decisions concermanagement of funds from the LEADER programme for the development of the countryside.

The main priority of LAG is to improve the quality of rural life, which includes six priorities with multiple objectives:
  • Increasing added value and quality at growing and processing, as well as marketing of local agricultural products
  • Initiating of environment - friendly farming
  • Improving employment possibilities in the countryside
  • Improving the life quality in the countryside
  • Animating and training of country people
  • Networking and connecting for innovative iniciatives
This represents a basis for the preparation and financing of projects by the LAG. For this purpose the LAG The Heart of Slovenia prepared a methodology and criteria for project selection, which is the basis for project evaluation.

LAG The Heart of Slovenia was officially approved by the Slovenian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food (MKGP) as operating LAG at the end of July 2008, which was a precondition for the use of funds belonging to the LEADER.

Funds for management, acquiring skills, animation of the area and implementing local development strategies are calculated annually through a special formula of the MKGP, based on LAG's size and population, index of development risk assessment, and local development strategies. We expect around € 1 million of development funds to come into LAG's area by the year 2013.
