The Council's Board of Directors is composed of no more than twenty-one members with staggered terms to assure continuity and stability. The original appointment of a Board member is for a term of three years and carries the option of renewal for a second three-year term. Board members are selected on the basis of their experience in positions of responsibility at their home institutions. COGR values its Board members for their expertise and ability to speak on behalf of their institutions. In their daily activities, they may be involved in academic, business or research administration tasks.

The Board of Directors serves the membership not only by executing the corporate oversight and management of the association, but by being actively involved in the subject areas COGR deals with, i.e., finance, administration and intellectual property management. Board members are the core of the working committees; they determine the agenda of issues in which COGR gets engaged. The Board serves the membership by holding three membership meetings annually, and by meeting an additional two times annually, between the public meetings, in order to advance the agenda.

Management

The Council's activities are managed by an Executive Committee and the Board of Directors. These groups are supplemented by an Investment Committee and a Nominations Committee. The Council meets three times a year in open session with occasional supplementary meetings for consideration of special issues. The COGR Board meets two additional times annually to keep COGR business current and moving. The Council's activities are governed by its by-laws, which include provisions for annual audits and activity reports. The activities of the Council are carried out by the volunteer services of university representatives and a small, full time staff in the Washington Office headed by the President. COGR's committee structure allows it to draw on expert advice and provide products in a timely fashion.

COGR COMMITTEES

In order to maximize the special expertise of its members, the Board of Directors has organized itself into three standing committees. These committees focus on broad subject matter areas including costing policies, research administration, and intellectual property management. In addition COGR annually invites a number of representatives from the membership at large to serve as committee members (jointly with the Board of Directors on the three standing committees). As the need arises special task forces may be formed to conduct COGR business.
