The day to day management and administration of LEIA is carried out by an executive team based in offices in Central London. A President is elected to serve for two years. Member companies are represented on the LEIA Council, which every year appoints a Management Board. The Management Board is authorised to act on LEIA’s behalf to deal with all such matters as may be expedient in the interests of the management of the Association’s affairs.
