Executive Committee

The Executive Committee, which numbers 15 members, decides, in the light of the general policies approved by the Council, the subjects of specialists’ conferences and other projects and selects the chairman of the Program Committee who will be entrusted with the scientific preparation of each project. The general practice is to invoke the aid of an economist of outstanding distinction in the subject who, with other members of the Committee chosen by him in consultation with the IEA Officers and Executive Committee, undertakes the scientific planning of the program and is responsible for the subsequent publication. Between the annual meetings of the Executive Committee, decisions concerning the work of the Association are taken by the President, in consultation with the other Officers, the Executive Committee frequently being consulted by letter.
