The General Assembly is the CRT's supreme governing body. In addition our 'National Standards Bodies', which form key representation in partnering nations, the assembly work towards naming delegates to the assembly, which normally meets quarterly in London. Members from countries where there is no national standards body may also be invited to participate.
Chairmanship and Executive Board
The General Assembly elects the Chairman and Vice-Chairman for terms in office.The assembly also elects the Executive Board, responsible for implementing CRT policy, on the Chairman's recommendation, usually achieved though ballot. The Executive Board has 10 members, who serve for two years each respectively.
The General Assembly guarantees the application of the requirements of the CRT Constitution and Charter and exercises all the authorizations with which it is assigned.
The meetings are structured with a predefined agenda formally agreed comprising of policy recommendations placed for consideration and ballot by the general assembly. Policy agreements are an essential outcome of all general assembly meetings as they shape the rules of how the CRT operates.
General assembly rules and policy decisions will directly stimulate international trade and investment as they shape the landscape of how business is conducted among our members. Based on our high profile membership, the CRT will work towards making the consensus business views accepted by our partner associations and institutions, ultimately passing a strong message across to governments and other intergovernmental organizations whose decisions will affect corporate governance, finance worldwide.
