There are 15 seats on the CCE-E (5 for industry/private sector, 5 for government, 5 for third parties). Not all seats need to be filled. Members are appointed by the board. The CCE-E meets twice a year with its affiliated certification bodies. Members of the CCE-E may have a position elsewhere, besides with the organization they represent for SCCM.
