| 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.
2) Committees and Projects (FY 2013)
Nominees to become new full members must be recommended by at least 3 members. Their academic and/or business achievements are examined and their eligibility for membership of the EAJ is assessed by the Member Nominating Committee, which then recommends eligible persons to the Board of Directors as new candidates for membership. Members of the Member Nominating Committee must also be approved by the Board of Directors.
