According to the statutes of the EOA, the two Governing Bodies are the General Assembly and the Executive Board. In addition to these, Commissions are set up by the General Assembly to work on specific subjects. There are currently four Commissions.
The General Assembly is the supreme executive body of the EOA. Members are the delegates of all member organisations. The General Assembly meets once a year to make decisions on all key matters. The General Assembly listens to reports from the Executive Board and other parties, determines the budget and approves the actions of the Executive Board. Each member has one vote in the elections.
