Adhering Organizations

Organizations of scientists in theoretical or applied mechanics (or unions of such organizations) that effectively represent independent scientific activity in a country or in a definite territory can be admitted by the General Assembly as adhering organizations of the Union, provided they can be listed under a name that will avoid any misunderstanding about the country or territory represented. In general, only one organization from each country or territory is admitted.

Each adhering organization has representatives in the General Assembly of the Union, and pays an annual subscription to the Union. The number of representatives of an adhering organization and the amount of the annual subscription to be paid by that organization is regulated according to one of five categories, as described in Article XIV of the IUTAM Statutes.
