Though it is not an official organ of the Conference, the Presidency plays a very important role in the activities of the organization, due to the fact that it legally represents the CISS before the Mexican State -Headquarters’ Host Country-, in addition to look after the good relations with the members, other international organizations and with similar institutions and organizations.
In accordance with the Conference’s regulation, the Presidency has responsibilities such as convene and preside the General Assembly, greatest organ of the Conference; the Standing Committee and the Directive Board of the CIESS. It inaugurates and closes every session and monitors debates. It also holds a casting vote in all of them in case there is a tie.
Traditionally, the General Assembly of the Conference has elected the National Mexican Institute for Social Security as their President, because of the enormous efforts it provides to the organization.

This administration is being presided by General Director Zoé Robledo Aburto.
