DI is a democratic organisation governed by its member companies and constantly evolving. Members’ requirements have priority and consequently committees, networks and professional and political focus areas change according to the developments of society.
Legally, DI is an association governed by an Executive Committee and a Central Board, which jointly formulate DI's political views. Members of the Executive Committee are appointed by the Annual General Assembly and they elect the Central Board, Chairman and Deputy Chairman from among themselves. All appointments are for one year at a time.
In addition to the elected management DI has a Board of Management, which handles external relations – e.g. with the press, meetings with politicians and delegation trips. Practical issues in relation to serving the interests of the Danish business community and DI's members are taken care of by DI's employees, headed by the Director General and CEO.
Many sectoral employers' associations and sector federations are included in DI's framework and partly or fully integrated in DI. Moreover, the members of DI in each region constitute a federation, dealing with regional policy as well as educational issues.
