The Board of 12 Trustees is elected by the membership in the region they represent. They are responsible for all monies as well as the strategic direction of CIArb. The elected members of the Board of Trustees are trustees for the membership as a whole (i.e. not regionally representational) and are not permitted to hold any other office nor take up any other appointment within CIArb, while serving as a Trustee.

The Board of Trustees meet twice a year (Spring and Autumn) and, every alternate year, the Board of Trustees' Autumn meeting coincides with the holding of Congress.

Congratulations to the successful candidates and thank you to all who stood in the elections.
