Council & Office

The 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 Assembly General in Split in June 2019 and is composed of 5 members.
