1) General Assembly, Board of Directors, Officers

In accordance with the rules on the operations of corporations prescribed by law, the EAJ organization is a body in which decision-making is conducted by the General Assembly formed of full members. The Board of Directers is made up of directors elected by the General Assembly, and in addition to carrying out decision-making on daily affairs, these directors elect officers including president, vice-presidents and an executive director. Auditors elected by the General Assembly represent the members by auditing the work of the Board of Directors and officers.

The substantive business of the academy is performed by the individual committees and divisions, but a secretariat exists to support administrative sides of activities.
