EuroGeographics is an international not-for-profit membership association (AISBL) under Belgian law. Our purpose, activities, membership and management are set out in our Articles of Association and our Rules and Regulations.
The Association is governed by the Management Board and the General Assembly of Members.
EuroGeographics holds two General Assemblies each year, not only for official Association business but also to provide opportunities for high-level knowledge exchange with peers. The main General Assembly is hosted by one of our members and takes place in the autumn. It is attended by the heads of the European National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registry Authorities. The Extraordinary General Assembly, for permanent correspondents, is held in the spring and coincides with the publication of our Annual Review.
Both provide the opportunity to report on our progress and future plans, share expertise and discuss key issues as well as to carry out the formal business of the Association. This includes approving our accounts, budget and subscriptions for the coming year and new member applications. Elections are also held to appoint a President and Management Board members.
More information about the General Assembly can be found in the Articles of the Association.
EuroGeographics is led by its President and Board Members. Six of these members are elected during the General Assembly. The remaining three are appointed by our principal financial contributors: France, Germany and Great Britain.
EuroGeographics Head Office team leads our representation activities and communications, and coordinates our knowledge networks, products and projects. Under the leadership of our Secretary General and Executive Director, Léa Bodossian, they combine their professional knowledge, experience and understanding of our members to drive forward our vision and mission.
