Structure

ANE is governed by an Executive Committee, which members are the presidents of the affiliates. The Executive Committee cannot exceed 5 members, one from each Nordic country.
Today, ANE has three affiliates, the three founding organisations. 

The general secretaries (administrative directors) of the affiliates participate in the meetings of the Executive Committee as observers.

The secretariat is led by General Secretary, who is selected via an open competition. General Secretary plans and manages the ANE activities, coordinates positions and represents ANE at various fora. 

General Secretary works closely with an appointed ANE- coordinator from each of the affiliates.  The main duty of ANE coordinator is the coordination of the international cooperation within the respective organisation and the transmission of all kinds of information between ANE and the affiliate.

The secretariat is placed in Copenhagen under the auspices of the Danish Society of Engineers.
