Affiliated Organizations

International organizations mainly occupied in fields closely related to that of IUTAM can be admitted by the General Assembly as affiliated organizations of the Union.

Each affiliated organization has the right to appoint an observer, who is invited to take part in the General Assembly without voting rights. The IUTAM Bureau has the reciprocal right to appoint a nonvoting observer to the corresponding council or other executive body of the affiliated organization.

The affiliated organization and IUTAM are mutually obliged to keep each other informed about all important activities of and organizational measures taken. In organizing international scientific meetings the Union and each of the affiliated organizations are obliged to consider carefully all measures already taken by the Union and its affiliated organizations in order to coordinate such international scientific activities. Affiliated organizations pay no annual dues to the Union.
