TAREA is organized in different bodies.


The organization is being supervised by Eng. Prosper Magali  (2021-2024)

Annual General Meeting

As TAREA is a membership organization, the management of the organization is naturally depending on the members. The institution for this is the Annual General Meeting (AGM), which takes place once a year. Every member is invited to attend to participate in making high-level decisions. The AGM usually sees the presentation of outcomes and perspectives of TAREA work during the period since the last meeting. Furthermore, at the AGM, the Secretariat presents the Annual Financial Report and proposes a budget for the coming period, which then needs to be confirmed by the AGM. Furthermore, the participants of the Annual General Meeting are electing the Executive Committee and the Advisory Committee. These committees supervise and steer TAREA's actual activities throughout the year.

  • Election of Executive Committee and Chairperson of the Technical Committee
  • Determination of general policies for TAREA
  • Consideration of Annual Report
  • Appoint auditors
  • Alternate and renew membership fees and other duties.

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee (EC) is the superior institution for all TAREA activities. The board meets once in three months. The authority and responsibility for managing the affairs of the Association in conformity
with the Constitution and By-Laws shall be vested in the Executive Committee.
The EC is elected by the AGM every three years. There are regulations on election eligibility. Generally, every active member of TAREA, except a student member is eligible to become a member of the EC. For more information please download our constitution.

During these meetings, the following items are usually on the agenda:
