FIGO Council 2018 - 2021
FIGO is registered as a charity (a non-profit organisation) in the United Kingdom.
We are a democratic body, and its governance is set out in its Constitution.
A General Assembly - comprising delegates from every Member Society - meets every three years on the occasion of the World Congress, electing the President and Officers for the ensuing three-year period (Member Societies’ votes are cast according to a sliding scale based on membership).
The Executive Board - comprised of representatives from 24 Member Societies and six FIGO Officers - meets at least once every year, and is also elected by free vote at the Assembly. It determines policy and is responsible for administrative procedures.
The FIGO Secretariat in London is responsible for all administrative matters, and is the base for some of FIGO’s project activities.
