ICLEI Governance
Local government members are form the constituency of ICLEI. Members are cities, towns, metropolitan governments, counties that are committed to sustainable development and join ICLEI in a formal process, normally decided by the local councils.

Members in each of the nine ICLEI Regions elect their Regional Executive Committees, that make up the ICLEI Council. The ICLEI Council has the power to elect the Global Executive Committee, revise the ICLEI Charter and establish policy direction for the organisation.

The ICLEI Council is the general assembly made up of the nine ICLEI Regional Executive Committee members. The Council meets every three years on the occasion to discuss and decide on ICLEI's strategic plans.

ICLEI Strategic Plan
Through the Strategic Plan, ICLEI's membership sets the direction for the association's policies and programs. According to the ICLEI Charter, the Strategic Plan is adopted by the ICLEI Council at the Council Meeting, which takes place every three years. The Strategic Plan has a six-year scope but is revised and renewed every three years.
