    Organizational structure: Congress The Congress is the highest body of the Socialist International Women and usually convenes every three years. The last Congress took place in Athens, Greece, in June 2008. At the Congress delegates of the member organisations decide on the main political issues and elect the Executive Committee. Council Delegates of each member organisation have the right to attend the Council meetings. At each Council delegates discuss a particular theme which is relevant to the host organisation. Declarations and resolutions are also adopted at the Council meetings. Regional meetings The member organisations of the Socialist International Women are divided into 11 regions. Two regional meetings take place each year in order to discuss issues that are relevant to a particular region. Executive Committee The Executive Committee consists of a President, a Secretary General and 11 Vice-Presidents. The Executive Committee meets four times a year to deal with political matters and to select the themes for discussion at the Council and Regional meetings. Other meetings The Socialist International Women also organises other events, conferences and seminars on an ad hoc basis.
