ExCom

Marine Board operations are overseen by the Executive Committee (ExCom). The ExCom is composed of a Chair and six vice-Chairs, elected by the Marine Board members, and the Executive Scientific Secretary (ex oficio) member.

The ExCom provides strategic guidance to the Board and Secretariat, oversees implementation of the actions agreed by the Board at plenary meetings, and makes operational and financial decisions.
