EBI Governance

EBI's Council is responsible for setting the organisation's policies and strategies. It looks at approaches, initiatives and projects at European level which can bring real benefits to European companies and boaters in the leisure marine industry.

The Council is composed of maximum 9 elected representatives who are proposed by their national organisation. Most of them are companies' leaders and therefore actively involved in the boating business. The current Council was chosen at the online Assembly General in June 2021 and is composed of 7 members:

In addition, the Executive Committee prepares the work of the Council and works with the Secretary-General on providing input to EU policy developments. It meets several times per year, and it is made up of the secretary-generals (or other representatives) of the national associations that are full members of EBI. It is led by the secretary-general from the same association as the President of the EBI Council.
