Memorandum and Articles of Association

The IGA worked with the FEI to ensure that its constitution and rules of membership met the best governance standards. 

The Articles of Association mandate that following the inaugural year of existence, the IGA members will periodically have a vote to elect the International Directors. 

This ensures that the IGA is independent and that the members have control of their own voice and direction of the organisation.
