The Assembly constitutes the entirety of MGCY. It consists of all members (entities and individuals) and all structures. It serves as the primary avenue for decision-making within the constituency.
Its functions, among other things include, receiving reports from the Secretariat, contributing to consultations, opening and closing working structures, and elect the members of the Secretariat and Steering Committee.
The Secretariat comprises the Global Coordinators and the Operations Facilitation Team. It is responsible for administrative facilitation of the constituency.
