The General Assembly gathers at least once a year to deliberate on planning and the balance sheet. Every three years elects the President, the Director and Legal Representative, the members of the Board of Directors, appoints the Control Committee and confers the statutory audit mandate.
The Board of Directors supervises the work of operational structures, appoints the relevant managers, and takes various decisions of general importance.
The operational co-ordination of activities is ensured by the Executive Board, which is composed of the President, Director and other managers appointed by the Board of Directors.
Projects are coordinated at the Rome headquarters by the Geographical Area Directors: Laura Carraro, Africa; Luigi Grando, Latin America and the Caribbean; Deborah Rezzoagli, Eastern Europe and Asia; Gianluca Falcitelli, Middle East and the Mediterranean; Giordana Francia, Italy and the European Union.
To ensure a high level of operating quality and inter-institutional coordination, the CISP sets up local offices managed by the Country Representatives in the countries where we operate most intensively.
CISP also has regional offices in Italy to consolidate relations with the country and local institutions.
