The General Assembly (GA) of the International Mathematical Union consists of Delegates appointed by the Adhering Organizations of IMU, together with the members of the Executive Committee, and of the Representatives of Associate and Affiliate IMU Members. Guests and observers may be invited additionally to GA meetings to participate for purposes of consultation upon specific items on the GA meeting agenda. Only Delegates have voting rights. The IMU Statutes contain a detailed description of the rights and duties of the General Assembly. At every General Assembly, resolutions concerning the running of the Union, the development of mathematics, international cooperation, etc. are passed. These are subsequently included in the relevant IMU Bulletin.
At the GA meeting in Gyeongju in August 2014 a document that provides Guidelines for the organization of a meeting of the GA was endorsed. The GA normally meets once every four years, usually at a place and date close to an International Congress of Mathematicians.
The last meeting of the IMU General Assembly was held in Helsinki, Finland, on July 3-4, 2022. The full report and resolutions will appear below in due course.
Below is a list of General Assemblies to date, each with the relevant resolutions, full report and group photo provided where available.
The Nominating Committee (NC) of the IMU is formed with the purpose of presenting slates of nominations to Adhering Organizations (AOs) in preparation for elections at the General Assembly.

The composition of the 2022 Nominating Committee was announced on 21 December 2020 following completion of the aforementioned selection procedures, with Wendelin Werner as NC Chair. Calls were subsequently sent out to Members to nominate candidates for the elections at the 2022 General Assembly. The 2022 Nominating Committee will produce a slate for the elections, which will be made available to Members in advance of the General Assembly.
