IAADS might be present, acting as members, in all national sports organizations for people with Down syndrome who share its goals, that commit to and participate in the activities of the Association. Only one member association of any country will be allowed.
All those who wish to be part of IAADS must submit an application for admission on the appropriate form and pay the membership fee determined by the Executive Board (currently 300 USDollars for two years 2017/2018).
The General Assembly of the members of IAADS is the highest deliberative body of the association.
When it is regularly convened and constituted it represents all the members and the resolutions adopted by it legitimately apply to all members, whether they agree or not.
The General Assembly should be convened by the Executive Board normally during the World Championships. Members can only attend the regular and special meetings of IAADS if they have paid the current membership fee.
Minute of the last General Assembly: Bloemfontein 2015.11.25
