Founded in 1964, the Union is open to national associations which share our objectives and meet relevant criteria, in particular the requirement to be open to people from all political, religious and cultural affiliations.
The Union now has member organisations in 40 countries and partners, networks or representatives in most others.
It is funded by annual subscriptions from members and grants and donations from appropriate bodies.
The Union is led by an International Board headed by the President, and including five Vice-Presidents, the Immediate Past President, the Honorary Treasurer and one representative of each member association. The Board meets annually, or more often If required.
The Union’s Secretariat is supported by an Executive Committee, which consists of the President, the five Vice- Presidents, the Immediate Past President, the Honorary Treasurer and the Director General, together with a representative of the organising committee of the next Congress and up to three further co-opted members.
Headed by IUAPPA’s Director General, the Secretariat is responsible for the Union’s programme, operations and publications.
