Minutes of the General Assembly

“The General Assembly is the highest authority of the Organization. Its decisions are binding on the Organization and its member societies including those member societies not present.” This quotation is from the Constitution of CIASEM. The Minutes of the meetings of the General Assembly represent, therefore, the official record of the business done by CIASEM.

The General Assembly meets normally every two years at the Interamerican Congress. Additional meetings were held in 1998 at the International Congress held in Cancun and in 2010 at the International Congress in Rio.
