of Federated Societies and elected Officers of the IEA. The Council makes all major
decisions concerning the IEA, including rule changes, general policy, activities,
admissions, election of officers and budget. Council admits all new members of the
IEA in any category and will terminate membership for good cause. The Affiliated
Societies and other non-voting members can attend the Council meeting as observers.
