A 9-persons Board is in charge of the CEI-Bois strategy, its objectives and its budget; it supervises the finances. 

The General Assembly is the CEI-Bois ultimate decision-maker. It is composed by all the Confederation’s Members, elects the Chairman and Vice-chairmen.

The Confederation is headed by a Secretary General, nominated by the Board, and supported by a staff of 4.
