The Joint Information Management Board (JIMB) serves as the JFC's principal organization to draft the commander's information dissemination policy and coordinates IM functions within the joint force. A JIMB should be convened during the initial development of the joint force IM plan and as required thereafter. It is chaired by that individual designated the IM officer. The JIMB should be composed of representatives from each staff section, component, and supporting agency, and operates under the supervision of the chief of staff, or other appropriate staff directorate, as best meets the JFC's mission needs. The commander or a senior representative provides direct input into the JIMB by detailing the commander's view of the operational environment management and its impact on information flow and IM.
