The Federation of Gay Games General Assembly brings together delegates from its full members (two delegates), associate members (one delegate), and board members (one vote).
Its institutional role is to elect the Federation’s Board of Directors, to amend the FGG’s bylaws, and in its Site Selection configuration (full members plus board), choose the hosts of the Gay Games.
The current model of board plus assembly dates from a historic bylaw change adopted at the Federation’s 2006 Annual Meeting in Lyon, France. This reform aimed at giving the Federation a smaller board, better able to execute the missions of the FGG and the policy deterined by the Assembly, while opening membership to a wider range of organizations.
At the beginning of the Gay Games, almost all work of the FGG took place at annual meetings. But with the growth of the Games and the Federation, and the development of new technologies, Assembly members remain involved all year round, with electronic votes, online discussions, and teleconferences.
