EURO is the "Association of European Operational Research Societies" and is a regional grouping within IFORS, the "International Federation of Operational Research Societies". It is a "non profit" association domiciled in Switzerland. Its affairs are regulated by a Council consisting of representatives/alternates of all its members and an Executive Committee which constitutes its board of directors. Its aim is to promote Operational Research throughout Europe.
The members of EURO are normally full members of IFORS and comprise the national OR societies of countries, most of whom are located within or nearby (in a broad sense) Europe. Each member is represented in the EURO Council by two representatives, one of whom votes if required. Council meetings are typically held annually, normally in conjunction with the EURO-k conferences.
The Council elects a President, a President-Elect (or immediate Past President), between 2 and 4 Vice-Presidents, a Secretary, and a Treasurer. These EURO officers form the Executive Committee. The President-Elect serves for only one year whereas all others are elected for two years. In addition Council elect an IFORS Vice-President to liaise with IFORS. EURO is supported by a Manager, a Webmaster, a Website Editor and Administrator, and a Conference Advisor.
