The Presidential Council defines AIDA’s working programme at an international level. The Presidential Council is composed of the President, Immediate Past President, Honorary Presidents, up to five Vice-Presidents, the Secretary General, any Assistant Secretaries General and Treasurer, the Chairmen of the Working Parties and a maximum of 32 councillors. Members of the Presidential Council are elected for a term of four years, except for the Honorary Presidents. Generally, the President may be re-elected once (twice in exceptional circumstances). The Presidential Council is elected by the General Assembly, which endeavours to achieve fair geographical and linguistic representation on the Council. The Presidential Council generally meets twice a year where possible. Their meetings are organised to coincide with meetings of the Working Parties, often at a conference or colloquium organised by a National Chapter.
