- The Executive Committee: President, President-Elect, Past President, Secretary General, Officer, and Treasurer. These must all be from different European countries and hold office for a period of two years (which in the case of the Secretary General and Treasurer may be renewed up to a maximum of eight years).
- The Administrative Council: comprising two representatives from each member society as well as one Young Internist Representative
