What is Humanism?
Our Members

The General Assembly (GA) is the policy making body of IHEU. It is made up of representatives of Member Organizations and Sections, and the IHEU Board members. The EC calls a General Assembly at least once in each calendar year. Usually some 30-40 IHEU Member Organizations are represented at each GA. The IHEU sometimes makes awards at the General Assembly.

Usually the GA is held in conjunction with a conference of the national Humanist organization in the host country. Every three years this is a World Humanist Congress event.
