AIACE is represented in various Member States by a Section which groups the former officials according to their place of residence.
These Sections were originally six in number, corresponding to the six founding States of the European Union (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands). Nine more sections have since been added, namely Denmark, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and Austria.
New sections can be created in other countries if the number of potential members justifies it.
In 2022, AIACE has more than 13.000 members.
If you reside in a country where there is no section, contact the Secretariat of AIACE-International directly.
The operation of the Sections
Each national section shall have an Assembly and a management body which are the bodies of the national branch. The management body can co-opt members. They must be set up in accordance with the national laws governing the establishment of each branch.
Within the context of their powers and territorial authority, each national branch shall contribute to the implementation of the aims of the Association.
The national branches shall liaise with the central bodies responsible for representing the members of the Association in dealings with the European Union institutions and bodies. There are currently 15 national branches (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom).
