As a Finnish non-profit organisation, CMI’s highest decision-making entity is the general meeting, which convenes CMI’s members (currently 113) to examine our annual financial and working plans and reports, and to select the board members. CMI’s board is ultimately responsible for our long-term strategy, significant financial decisions, the approval of new members and the appointment of the Executive Director. The board currently has nine members. CMI’s Executive Director leads our work and oversees the implementation of our strategy. A leadership team provides support in planning and decision-making.
