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 World Congress or other appropriate conference. This arrangement also has the useful consequence of ensuring a reasonable geographical distribution. If necessary, the Assembly can also be held online.
