Barcelona, Spain – On 21 and 22 October 2016, AWEPA’s Governing Council came together at the Pedralbes Palace in Barcelona, Spain.
The meeting provided an opportunity for Council, which comprises some 40 current and former parliamentarians from AWEPA’s Sections in Europe, to discuss the organisation’s overall policy and direction.
The Governing Council is AWEPA’s highest policy body. Every five years, the Council elects an Executive Committee and the President of the organisation, who are accountable to this Council. The Governing Council, chaired by AWEPA’s President Minister of State Ms. Miet Smet, operates as a general assembly and aims to meet at least once a year.
