ERT today brings together up to 50 chief executives and chairmen of major multinational companies of European parentage, covering a wide range of industrial sectors. Individuals join at the personal invitation of existing Members, which confers on ERT membership a personal rather than corporate character. ERT Members meet twice a year, in person, at Plenary Sessions. At these Plenary Sessions, Members determine ERT’s work programme, set priorities and establish specialised Working Groups to work on them. Decisions are taken by consensus. The ERT Chairman, two vice-Chairmen, the former ERT Chairman and five other elected Members form the Steering Committee. The Steering Committee reviews ERT activities and makes recommendations to the Plenary Sessions. Each ERT Member nominates an Associate to act as a main point of liaison at working level and to help implement the decisions taken by Members. Much of the work is done by the Working Groups established by the Plenary Sessions. They are chaired by ERT Members and comprise Members, Associates and experts from the companies behind ERT Members. The Working Groups present proposals to the Plenary and take a leading role in the drafting of official ERT messages and positions. The Secretary General is in charge of a small Executive based in Brussels, which coordinates projects, acts as a contact point, provides administrative support and publishes the ERT reports.
