The International Executive Council (IEC), the highest decision-making body of ICID, is vested with the management of the affairs of ICID.  IEC meets every year to transact business of administrative and technical in nature.  All technical workbodies of ICID meet prior to the Council meeting and these meetings are termed as Pre-Council meetings. 


Annual IEC meeting is always preceded by the annual meeting of various technical working group/ task teams, and meetings of various workbodies such as PCSO, PCTA, PFC etc.


IEC related meetings are also preceded by ICID triennial Congresses, newly conceptualized World Irrigation Forums, and Regional Conferences in a three-year cycle. This dual purpose approach while on one side helps ICID meet its objectives, it also provides opportunity to address specific global technical issues, regional issues and provides platform to interact with its stakeholders and have a better outreach to disseminate its messages and achieve its mission and goals.
