OVERVIEW

The Board of Governors is the highest policy making body of CDB and meets once a year in one of the member countries of CDB. All of the powers of CDB are in the hands of the Board of Governors, which can delegate its powers to the Board of Directors except on certain matters such as: the admission of new members, change in capital stock, election of Directors and the President, amendment of the Charter, and termination of the operations of CDB.

Annual meetings

Governors representing CDB’s member countries convene yearly for an Annual Meeting, during which they receive updates on critical operational developments that could have implications for the Bank’s day-to-day management. They also discuss proposed strategic approaches that could enhance CDB’s effectiveness and responsiveness to its Borrowing Member Countries.

THE GOVERNORS

Each member country nominates one Governor and one Alternate Governor. Each Governor casts the votes of the member territory which he/she represents. The British overseas territories of Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Montserrat and Turks and Caicos Islands are regarded as one member.
