Governance and Bylaws
Governance

WANGO is an international membership organization. The general direction of the work of the Association is the responsibility of the International Council, which is elected by the membership, and which supervises and approves decisions affecting goals, policies, plans, and programs. International Council members are elected to three-year terms. Between meetings of the International Council, the International Executive Committee is responsible for the conduct of the affairs of the Association and for the implementation of the decisions of the International Council. The Secretary General serves as the chief executive officer under the International Council and exercises general supervision over the affairs of the Association. In addition, there are national and sub-regional chapters of the Association, as well as national representatives for those countries without established chapters.
