The WFE General Assembly and Annual Meetings:
The General Assembly is the ultimate decision-making body of the World Federation of Exchanges, responsible for approving policies, including admission/suspension of membership, annual budgets, and election of WFE officers(WFE Articles of Association:12 General Assembly). CEOs and other representatives of member exchanges worldwide attend the main yearly WFE meeting every October. Unlike the General Assembly, which is for members only, the Annual Meetings are open to the public. Leaders of global exchanges, regulatory authorities, industry experts from academia and the media gather together for in-depth discussion on major issues surrounding the exchange industry.
