In accordance with article 3 of the Articles of Association, the executive bodies of the EGTC include:
- the general meeting
- the board
- the President and Vice-president
- the management
- the auditors
- the arbitral tribunal
- the control body
The general meeting.
The highest body of the EGTC. Each member has the right to send a delegate or representative to the general meeting. The ordinary general meeting takes place once a year, at which all members of the EGTC assemble. If an extraordinary general meeting is desired, this can be convened by resolution of the board, the ordinary general meeting, or upon request of an auditor or at least a tenth of the voting members.
Each member has one vote in the general meeting. The attendance of at least half of members at the first convocation is required to constitute a quorum. Voting and resolutions require a simple majority. Resolutions to amend the list of criteria require a two-third majority, while amendments to the Articles of Association require a unanimous vote.
The board is responsible for the operational implementation of the duties of the EGTC. It consists of the following members:
- Five vice-presidents (one of whom also assumes the role of treasurer)
- Two representatives delegated by the supporting partners (with no voting rights)
The general meeting selects the board from amongst the members and instates it for a three-year term. Service as a member of the board is uncompensated. Each country has the right to appoint at least one vice-president (with the exception of the country that appoints the president).
Duties include the mandatory reporting to the general meeting on the board’s duties and the financial situation, the preparation of the annual financial statement including the balance sheet for submission to the auditors, the management of activities and finances of the EGTC including budget planning and the preparation for general meetings.
The president is the external face and representative of the EGTC and performs the role of a director. The appointed vice-presidents deputise for the president in his or her absence. The president’s duties involve convening the general meeting and board meeting and chairing the meetings, signing contracts in concert with management, and preparing the activity report.
Management is led by one person, is appointed by the general meeting for a three-year term, and is responsible for the execution and implementation of the agreed measures. The management also participates in the board meetings and general meetings in an advisory capacity. They develop strategic guidelines, support the president with his or her duties, and ensure implementation of the members’ resolutions. Management is also responsible for the budget, revenues, and payments.
The general meeting appoints two auditors from amongst the representatives for the entire term of office. Both auditors must be independent and impartial and may not simultaneously hold the role of board member. Their duties include auditing the financial management and preparing an audit report. The auditors can also convene a general meeting.
The arbitral tribunal
The arbitral tribunal is responsible for the resolution of disputes between EGTC members in the first instance. It consists of a chair and two committee members; these may not be members of the EGTC and must appoint a deputy. Details of the procedure for arbitration proceedings can be found in the Articles of Association.
The control body
An external expert and a representative of management constitute the control body. The criteria to be assessed are defined in the criteria list of the Articles of Association. Members are examined with respect to these criteria by the control body.
