The PIANC Management consists of:

1.     The Annual General Assembly (AGA)

The governing body is the Annual General Assembly, which is composed of delegations from the member governments (Qualifying Members). These delegations usually represent not only the governments themselves, but also the Individual and Corporate Members of the National Sections which most countries have established.

The AGA operates through a Council and an Executive Committee (ExCom), which in turn, supervise the various Commissions. All Qualifying Members are entitled to have representatives in all Commissions and Working Groups. The AGA usually meets in the month of May in one of the Qualifying Member nations.
