Organization

The organ of the association with decision making power is the General Assembly.
 The standing committee is the main executive organ.

Decision Making

Decisions are made by simple majority vote of the General Assembly unless the constitution require a qualified majority. The requirement of qualified majority is at least 2/3 of the votes cast by paid up members.

The General Meeting

The main tool for implementing the Association statutory goals is the general meeting. AWMA will have a general meeting at least once every two years.

The General Assembly

The general assembly is held every second year during the general meeting. It is the responsibility of the standing committee to announce the General Assembly. The announcement is done with the assistance of the coordinators at least six months in advance in a letter sent to each member or by e-mail or by an announcement in an appropriate newsletter. Two thirds of the members shall constitute a quorum for a General Assembly.

Structure

AWMA is a network.

The standing committee, with its president and secretary, organizes the activitivies between two General Assemblies. The first standing committe was elected for the period 2013-2017.

There are coordinators, basically one  in each region of Africa. Their role is to develop activities in their region and to report on them to the network.

AMU, the African Mathematical Union, has a committee for Women in Mathematics, AMUCWMA, acting in close relationship with AWMA.
