Structure: Central Board

As FIBA's top level executive branch, the Central Board's role is to supervise the practice of basketball worldwide.

It is composed of the President of FIBA, the FIBA Secretary General and the Treasurer of FIBA, the President of each Zone, 13 members elected by the Congress, according to a continent-based quota system (Africa= 2, Americas= 3, Asia= 2, Europe= 4, Oceania= 2), one representative of the NBA and one player representative.

The Central Board may also co-opt up to six additional members to the Central Board (with full voting rights) for the vision, skill and special expertise that they will bring to the Central Board.

The Central Board appoints the Secretary General, the Executive Committee as well as the eight permanent FIBA Commissions that examine and advise on specific aspects of the sport.

The term of office of the Central Board is four years, beginning after the last day of each elective Congress.

The Central Board reports to the FIBA Congress. It holds two ordinary meetings each year in the year of the Ordinary Congress and one meeting in other calendar years. If deemed necessary, the FIBA President and Secretary General may also call extraordinary meetings.
