Work of the Board

The work of the Board of Directors follows an annual agenda established in the Board's Procedural Rules. The Board’s work is mainly performed within the framework of formal board meetings and through meetings in the committees of the Board. To ensure that the Board has the relevant information and documentation on which to base decisions, the Board receives, in preparation for each board meeting, reports and documentation compiled according to established procedures.
