Global Assembly (Formerly International Council Meeting)

    About the Global Assembly (GA)

    Every year, a GA is convened, where representatives of each section come together to discuss strategies, policies, vote on International Board members, and share ideas and knowledge to guide the international movement. Previously, this gathering was held every two years and was known as the International Council Meeting (ICM).

    AICS(ES) will participate with a delegation made up of the Board President, the Secretary General, and an elected member Delegate. Every third year a Youth Delegate will be added as a fourth member of the delegation.
