CBI: The Council
About the CBI

The Council

The Council of the CBI is the governing body under the CBI's charter and bye-laws

Its members are:

  • The president, deputy president, any vice presidents and the past six presidents
  • The members of all 12 regional councils throughout the UK
  • The members of the President's Committee
  • The members of the Enterprise Forum
  • The members of the Trade Association Council.

The Council has delegated those powers it can to the Chairmen's Committee and the CBI Board. As a result the full Council is unlikely to meet and then only to deal with those matters it cannot delegate under the CBI's charter and bye-laws. It would also only meet should there be an issue that could not be resolved within the delegated authorities or at the meetings of its constituent parts.
