Our board

The AIC has a democratically elected board, chosen by member companies. The board comprises 12 directors drawn from boards of member companies, management group representatives and other industry stakeholders as well as the AIC’s Chief Executive.

Board members are elected for a three-year term and, if re-elected, can serve two further terms or up to nine years. AIC members nominate and vote for new board members annually.
