SACEM is a private entity; it is a non-trading company [“société civile”] directed by authors, composers and publishers. The Board of Directors is elected every year by the Annual General Meeting and is comprised of six authors, six composers, one author/film director and six music publishers. The Executive Board administers Sacem; the CEO of the Executive Board is appointed by the Board of Directors and manages SACEM.
Two large departments based at headquarters collect authors’ rights: one covers film and TV, record production, videos and the Internet, while the other deals with music performances, musical events and sites/venues open to the public. SACEM has 70 delegation offices and seven departments to cover country regions outside Paris for optimal collection of rights due. Working through the same network, SACEM has good presence in the field for cultural programs and initiatives.
