The current SITA Board is composed of 13 Board Directors, including the SITA CEO.
Board Directors are nominated by the SITA Council for appointment by the General Assembly of Members.
The term of office for Board Directors, except the SITA CEO, is three years, with one-third of the Board seats being available for re-election each year.
The role of the SITA Board has been modelled on best practice for both cooperative and commercial organizations. The SITA Board supervises the activities of the SITA Group so as to ensure its effective operations.
The SITA Board has two standing Committees: the Audit and Risk Management Committee and the Remuneration Committee, which report into the SITA Board.
