A broad multiplicity of member associations
In addition, DI has more than one hundred member associations as well as multi-trade communities. These cover e.g. the food industry; IT, telecommunication, electronics and communication; the building material industry; the energy industry; the service industry; the automotive industry; the Danish Management Board; the wood and furniture industry and the machinery and metal industry.
DI is a democratic organisation governed by its members and constantly evolving. Members’ requirements have priority, and consequently committees, networks and professional and political focus areas change according to the developments of society.
Legally, DI is an association governed by an Executive Committee and a Central Board, which jointly formulate DI's political views. Members of the Executive Committee are appointed at the Annual General Assembly and they elect the Central Board, Chairman and Deputy Chairman from among themselves. All appointments are for one year at a time.
In addition to the elected management, DI has a Board of Management, which handles external relations – e.g. with the press, meetings with politicians and delegation trips. Practical issues in relation to serving the interests of the Danish business community and DI's members are taken care of by DI's employees, headed by the Director General and CEO.
