Governing bodies DEP/Council
Governing Bodies within the OACM are divided into several groups and operate under different mechanisms with a responsibility in controlling the conglomerate’s work, development and global integration into governmental and corporate sectors, as well as obtaining close collaboration with the world organizations. Each of the executive line of directors, board members, heads of departments, and members of the World Ocean Council has a specific role and assignments that contribute to OACM’s global operations and its mission in implementing the OACM SOS CP globally to preserve and protect the ocean - and most importantly, minimise the plastic in the ocean.
are responsible for supervising the workload in internal functions of the organization and overseeing its sustainability, as well as maintaining the stability of the organization and all internal communications. This is due to the fact that some members are located across the continents and some of them have been with the organization from the start - they might not have the necessary experience in marine biology or biodiversity, which is why the conglomerate has compensated by building several structures within the department with experts within those fields.
Executive Directors and CEOs

They oversee partnerships with organizations which includes signing OACM memberships and expansion of OACM SOS CP - CSMA (Certified SAFE Marine Areas). The Executive Directors and CEOs are referred to as the Directorate - General, and have the full authority under the President’s executive orders to initiate or terminate an OACM membership or partnership collaboration.
DEP / CEO

The DEP / CEO’s responsibility is to expand their department and to recruit new members: individuals who can support or improve the department’s efficiency, progress and introduce new modern and innovative solutions that can be globally integrated in the governmental and corporate sector.
