General Assembly

The decisive body of the IOF is the members in General Assembly. A General Assembly may be either Ordinary or Extraordinary. The Ordinary General Assembly shall meet biennially. Each IOF member has the right to send three delegates to a General Assembly. Each member represented at the General Assembly, except for provisional members, has one vote.

The next IOF Ordinary General Assembly will take place in 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic.
