Introduction


The Directors are assisted by the Managing Council, to whom they may delegate responsibilities. Council comprises:

  • The Directors ex officio
  • Up to 15 Parliamentary Members – elected at the AGM; the Directors may make appointments to fill vacancies.
  • Up to 15 representatives of Full Members - elected at the AGM; the Directors may make appointments to fill vacancies.

Council normally meets four times a year (in January, April, July and October).

Sub-Committees, which must include at least one Director, are formed for specific purposes and their terms of reference are agreed by Council.

Council establishes working groups to carry out the content-specific activities of the Digital Policy Alliance (EURIM) and appoints the Group Chairmen. Council monitors group activities and decides how resource will be allocated.
