Our Team

The Alliance

The structure of AGA has a General Coordination, made up of General, Administrative and Communication coordinators. On the other hand, there are Program and Field Coordinators. In addition, there are focal points for each country, with one representative for each of the four rank countries. All these positions are elected every 3 years, and make up the AGA Council that assists the General Coordination in the decision-making process. All the active members of AGA have voice and vote in the general meetings.
