IARU R2 General Assembly 2013 in Cancun, Mexico

The ultimate authority in each of the three IARU regional organizations is the General Conference or General Assembly. Regional conferences are held on a three-year, rotating schedule so there is one held every year. Their role is to decide regional policy, to set the regional work agenda and budget, and to elect an executive committee to manage the affairs of the region for the following three years.

Each member-society that has met its financial obligation to the region has the right to attend and to vote at the regional conference, or to assign its proxy to another member-society if it is unable to attend.

The last General Assembly took place in Lima, Peru. The next IARU R2 General Assembly will be held 2022 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
