Governing Council

The IFHTSE authority is its Governing Council, required to meet annually. For practical reasons, these annual Assemblies of the Governing Council are timed to coincide with a Congress or other appropriate conference. This arrangement also has the useful consequence of ensuring a reasonable geographical distribution.
