The OLACEFS General Assembly is the organisation’s most important body, meeting ordinarily once a year in the country chosen at the previous assembly. All OLACEFS members participate in the General Assembly, along with various guests. It is traditional to hold a meeting of the organisation’s Governing Board previous to the start of the General Assembly.

Entities from all over the world are expected to attend the LXII Meeting of the Governing Board and the XXV OLACEFS Ordinary General Assembly, to be held between November 23 and 27, 2015 in the city of Santiago de Queretaro, Mexico. Also attending will be international cooperation agencies and other entities related to the functions of SAIs.

The General Assembly will cover two thematic areas of particular relevance to our institutions: Citizen Participation and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The event will provide an excellent opportunity to address these themes and assess the progress made by our control community at regional and global level.
