A General Assembly, comprising representatives from all World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) member societies and regional associations, shall review the work of the Governing Council and attends to other business including determination of the venue of the World Congress of Gastroenterology (WCOG). The WCOG occurs on a quadrennial basis, with our next Congress taking place in 2017. After 2017, the WCOG will officially move to a two-yearly schedule beginning with the meeting in 2019.
The General Assembly members vote on amendments to the statutes and the adoption of by-laws, as well as the election of WGO officers. There shall be only one vote for each member society. For more information, please see the WGO Statutes and By-laws.
