Executive Board

The Executive Board is BIG's main scientific and decision-making authority.


The Board meets several times a year to see that decisions taken by the General Assembly are carried out and to ensure the smooth running of the association. Board members are elected every four years at the General Assembly, which comprises all member groups and serves as highest authority with respect to overall direction of the association.
