EURIM Structure and Governance

Structure

EURIM is a not-for-profit membership organisation incorporated in 1993 as a Company Limited by Guarantee.  It is governed by a Board of Directors and administered through a Managing Council.


Chairman and President

The Earl of Erroll is the Chairman. 

Lord Renwick is EURIM's President. 


Directors

EURIM is governed by its Board of Directors, who are normally Parliamentarians at the time of their appointment. Directors are elected by the Membership at the Annual General Meeting but the Board also has powers to co-opt. Board meetings are held immediately prior to each Council meeting and at other times as the need arises.

Council

The Directors are assisted by the Managing Council, to whom they may delegate responsibilities. Council comprises:

  • The Directors ex officio

  • 15 Parliamentary Members – elected at the AGM; the Directors may make appointments to fill vacancies.

  • 15 representatives of Corporate Members - elected at the AGM; the Directors may make appointments to fill vacancies.

Council normally meets four times a year (in January, April, July and October).

Sub-Committees (e.g. The Audit Committee), which must include at least one Director, are formed for specific purposes and their terms of reference are agreed by Council.

Council establishes working groups to carry out the content-specific activities of EURIM and appoints the Group Chairmen. Council monitors group activities and decides how resource will be allocated. Click here for a list of Council Members.

Working Goups

The working groups are commonly led by a Parliamentary Chair and an Industry Chair from a member company. They may also have vice-chairs and subgroups. Each working group also has one or more rapporteurs who support the chairman and assists with drafting, research, minutes and some administration. EURIM commonly provides a budget towards the cost of the rapporteurs, with any over-run funded by the participants in that group. 


The Information Society Alliance (EURIM) Executive Team

Deputy Secretary-General: Sarah Chilman, responsible for membership and events.

Company Secretary, Ian Boagé, responsible for statutory, board matters and administration.

Secretary to the Board and Council: Emma Fryer, responsible for editorial control and balance, reporting to the Board.

Assistant Secretary-General: Dan Mount, responsible for the Public Service Delivery and Cyber Security and E-Crime Groups.

Research Secretary: Dr David Wright, responsible for the Information Governance Group and supervises the quality of work done by rapporteurs and interns.

The Alliance is a "virtual" organisation with no physical office location. The members of the executive team work from their homes using online networking tools.

Whenever possible, working parties are organised and resourced by corporate and associate members and partners (see each working group for details).
