ETIS comprises three permanent bodies: the Management Board, the Council and the Central Office.
The Management Board determines the policy of ETIS and approves the annual budget. The board consists of representatives from all companies who are full members of ETIS. The Management Board meets twice a year to exchange ideas, identify topics of interest and common concern and a Chairman and Secretary-Treasurer are elected every two years. The board authorises the formation of Working Groups, with specific responsibilities to pursue these topics.
The Council consists of 7 to 9 members of the Management Board. They are elected for a period of two years and may be re-elected. The Council is chaired by the Chairman of the Board and meets periodically to determine strategy and oversee the operational aspects of ETIS.
The Central Office, is a permanent group of personnel employed by ETIS to provide stable administrative support, management, project co-ordination, internal and external communication and information to facilitate the activities of the Council, the Management Board and Working Groups.
Working Groups are made up of experts from the member companies who wish to participate in them and the associate companies that are invited to participate. The companies provide their time and effort free of charge. A Working Group may carry out studies, share information, develop or evolve a standard, work together with operational departments to design or produce an IT solution to a business problem, etc. The deliverables of the Working Groups are the intellectual property of ETIS.
