The ESA Executive Committee is ESA’s supreme executive body. It comprises the ESA President and 3 other members, including at least one female, elected by a ESA Congress, as well as two members elected by the English Club Association (SCA) and one member elected by English Divisions & Leagues, ratified by the Congress, all with the same rights and duties as the other Executive Committee members. 

Members and vice-presidents

The ESA Executive Committee does not include more than one representative of the same ESA member association. This rule does not apply to either the female member or the members of the Executive Committee elected by the ECA and English Divisions & Leagues. The Executive Committee members elected by the ECA cannot belong to clubs affiliated to the same member association. Each Executive Committee member to be elected by the Congress, except for the President and any female member, holds an active office (i.e. president, vice-president, general secretary or chief executive officer) within his member association. 
The ESA Executive Committee elects a first vice-president, four other vice-presidents and a treasurer (with the same status as a vice-president) upon proposal of the ESA President. The President may assign specific duties to each of the vice-presidents.

Special advisor
ESA’s President is able to invite third parties to attend ESA Executive Committee meetings in an advisory capacity. 

Term of office
The term of office of the ESA President and ESA Executive Committee members elected by a ESA Congress is four years. Two members, or two members (including at least one female) and the ESA President, are elected every two years. The term of office of the Executive Committee members elected by the ECA and English Divisions & Leagues is four years. No person may serve as President or Executive Committee member for more than three terms of office, whether consecutive or not. A person aged 70 or more is not eligible for election or re-election. If a vacancy occurs, the next Ordinary ESA Congress elects or ratifies a replacement for the remaining term of office. If the vacancy occurs in the final year of a term of office, no replacement is elected or ratified.

The term of office of the ESA President and ESA Executive Committee members starts at the close of the ESA Congress at which they are elected or ratified, and ends at the close of the ESA Congress at which their successors are elected or ratified.

Powers
The ESA Executive Committee is empowered to adopt regulations and make decisions on all matters which do not fall within the legal or statutory jurisdiction of the ESA Congress or another organ. The ESA Executive Committee manages ESA, except to the extent that it has delegated such management, or unless such management has been delegated by the ESA Statutes to the ESA President or the ESA administration.

Duties
The ESA Executive Committee has the following non-transferable duties:

  • Overall control of ESA and the issuing of necessary instructions
  • Definition of the organisational structure
  • Form and supervision of the book-keeping
  • Appointment of five members of the ESA Governance and Compliance Committee and the issuing of their terms of reference
  • Appointment of the General Secretary and deputy General Secretary upon the proposal of the ESA President
  • Dismissal of the General Secretary and deputy General Secretary upon the proposal of the ESA President, or by a decision supported by two-thirds or more of all members of the ESA Executive Committee
  • Overall supervision of the ESA administration, including the general secretary and deputy general secretary, especially in terms of observance of laws, the ESA Statutes, regulations and orders; approval of the annual business plan of the ESA administration
  • Compilation of a written report for presentation to the Ordinary ESA Congress
  • Examination of the administration’s report to the Ordinary ESA Congress

The ESA Executive Committee may delegate the preparation and implementation of its decisions or the supervision of business to one or more of its members. The committee is also authorised to delegate management, either fully or partly, to the ESA President, to one or more of its members and/or to the ESA administration.

Meetings
As a general rule, the ESA Executive Committee meets once every two months, and is convened by the ESA President. The ESA President may invite third parties to attend meetings of the ESA Executive Committee in an advisory capacity. The committee has a quorum of more than half of its voting members, including the ESA President or, in his absence, a vice-president.

Decisions
ESA Executive Committee decisions come into immediate force, unless the ESA Executive Committee decides otherwise. A ESA Executive Committee member or the ESA President does not take part in the deliberation of any matter or point of issue involving the member association and/or a club and/or a league affiliated to the member association with which he/she is associated, or in any case in which a conflict of interest exists.
