Board of the General Assembly

The Board of the General Assembly (BGA) is a 15-person group authorized by the General Assembly to act on its behalf between meetings. The Board also acts as the main communication channel between member societies and the Executive Committee and Council. BGA increases and expands the ability of the GA to play continuing, active roles in the management and operation of IUPS during the periods between the quadrennial full meetings of the GA that take place at IUPS Congresses and plays an important role in the nomination of candidates for the Executive Committee and Council.

It contributes to increased and wider participation in organizational direction and policy-making through a reasonable balance in its membership between representatives of both the larger and smaller participating societies in IUPS and between representatives from the different regions of the world. For more details on the function of BGA read the Constitution and Bylaws.

BGA has also the responsibility to develop and present to each full meeting of the GA a written assessment of the current status of the field of physiology world-wide, emphasizing major challenges, opportunities, and problems.
