ICLEI constitutes the highest decision-making unit through regional representatives voted by members.The main governance components of ICLEI: Global Executive Committee (GexCom), Regional Executive Committee (RexComs) and Global Council (ICLEICouncil) are elected by members every three years.
The ICLEI Global Executive Committee represents all ICLEI members from a global perspective to conduct international exchanges and formulate organizational development strategies. Each of the nine regions of the world has an independent ICLEI Executive Committee (RexComs), which is responsible for reviewing initiatives and projects in the region.
The Global Council is composed of members of the regional executive committees. It is the highest decision-making unit of ICLEI. It is responsible for formulating strategic plans as an action plan, and has the power to modify rules and regulations and vote for the global executive committee.
All ICLEI members are eligible to be elected as members of the regional executive committee and have the right to vote. Each regional executive committee will elect a member representative, and the project committee responsible for each field of work will form a global executive committee; the chairman, first vice chair and two vice chairpersons of the global executive committee will represent the global organization and co-lead ICLEI global Board of Directors and Global Executive Committee.
