The Board of Directors (including the President) consists of a maximum of 11 members; if possible, it should have at least 5 members. He is elected for a term of two years; re-election is possible.
With the exception of the President, the members of the Board must themselves be representatives or officers of a member of the Association. If a Board member no longer meets these requirements, his Board membership shall automatically expire and the represented member of the Association shall have the right to nominate a replacement Board member of his choice.
If a founding member resigns from the association, the board membership of his representative automatically expires and the remaining founding members have the right to jointly (simple majority) nominate a replacement board member of their choice. The entitlement of the founding members to a total of at least six seats on the Board of Directors shall remain unchanged.
