The General Assembly is the sovereign body of the association: it consists of all members with the right to vote. It approves the association’s accounts and sets strategic guidelines for the two following years. Honorary members serve in an advisory capacity.

The next General Assembly took place at ESOF2022 in Leiden, The Netherlands.
