Our Leadership
The final responsibility for AIJ's policy lies with the General Assembly, which meets in March and May every year. Legally appointed Representatives of AIJ members and Officers (President, Vice-Presidents, Directors, Chairmen of Chapters, and Auditors) have the right to participate and approve the agenda. It is the General Assembly that discusses and determines the general policy of AIJ. At the General Assembly held in May, new Officers of the next term are appointed. The affairs of AIJ are managed on behalf of the General Assembly by the meeting of AIJ Board of Directors. The AIJ Board is appointed for a two-year period. The Board consists of the president and five vice-presidents, 10 directors, nine chairmen of chapters and two auditors, and one managing director.
