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.
