The Directors view differences within the business community as assets and opportunities, provide a model for success and also useful diversity within the Namibian business environment.
The Board of Directors is appointed by the AGM/National Council for a term of two years. This body is composed of the President, two Vice-Presidents, three immediate past Presidents and seven other directors elected from amongst members of the National Council. The CEO of the Chamber is an ex-officio member of the Board.
The Board is the highest policy-making organ of the Chamber when the National Council/AGM is not in session. It appoints and supervises the work of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and it ensures that branches comply with agreed NCCI policies and procedures.
Each branch elects an Executive Committee from amongst its members to oversee the work of the branch and lead the advocacy programme of the Chamber in the local area. Such members include the Branch Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Treasurer and four additional members. The Branch Executive Committee is appointed at a Branch AGM for a term of two years.
