Board of Directors

Governance

The CICAE is governed by a Board of Directors, composed of national association members and representatives of individual cinemas and of festivals, and a Bureau (or Steering Committee), which is formed by a President, 2 to 4 Vice presidents, a treasurer and a secretary. The Board of Directors and Bureau run for a two-year term. 

The Board meets at least once a year and takes main decisions for the financial aspects and the core activities of the association. During the annual General Assembly, where all members are invited, the Board presents the financial and moral report, which the assembly has to vote upon, as well as the evolution of the projects.

The current Board was elected at the CICAE General Assembly in June 2021.

Bureau

The Bureau is elected by the Board of Directors and is formed by a president, 2 to 4 vice-presidents, a treasurer and a secretary. Additional members can be also elected. The Bureau is elected every 2 years, and has executive power.
