The EB meets regularly and is made up of a President, General Secretary, Finance Director and 4 other ordinary members. They are responsible for the strategic and operational management of WMH.
The EB reports to the membership at the bi-annual General Assemblies where at least half of the EB need to be re-nominated and seconded by members if they wish to be re-elected. There are limits to the number of years a member can serve on the EB. The EB is advised by 5 Standing Committees.
There is also a Full Board which meets quarterly and includes representatives from each of the Continental Federations and the FIH. Any proposed changes by the EB, including changes in EB members, must gain the approval of the Full Board to be accepted.
