Due to the state of alarm that Spain and many other countries in the world are experiencing, the Extraordinary General Assembly was held by telephone, with significant participation by members from various countries in the world. The new chairman pointed out that "the unfortunate circumstances that are being experienced have not prevented the world of Arbitration in Spanish and Portuguese from continuing to move forward, automatically adapting to this new situation, bringing together its partners from different continents, countries and cities telematically, so as not to stop or suspend their activity."

The Board of Directors is the management and representation body of the CEA, an organization that has more than 1,000 members in 43 countries and 30 International Chapters; among its functions are those of programming and directing the social activities, or representing the Club in all matters related to its objective.
