The General Council consists of representatives of the European countries active in magnetism research, typically one representative per country. It defines the general policy developed by the EMA. It oversees that the actions developed by the EMA, as well as those developed by associated bodies (ESM, JEMS, etc..), respect the Statute of the association.
The committee is being put together. Beginning at JEMS 2016, the Council was consisting of the members of the International Advisory Committee (IAC) of JEMS. One third of them has been replaced in 2017, one third will be in 2018 and one final third in 2019, marking the end of the transition period.
