. Cultivate friendship and solidarity.

The ASAZ is composed of three main organs: the General Assembly of members that meets annually and is the supreme organ; the Board that is the executive body that leads and manages the Association under the guidelines of its Articles; and the Control Body that is responsible for auditing the accounts and the reports presented by the Board and present a report to the General Assembly.
