World Scout Conference

The World Scout Conference is the governing body or general assembly of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM). It takes place every three years and provides an opportunity for Member Organizations to play an active role in shaping the standards, policies, and shared goals of the Scout Movement worldwide. 

The Conference defines the general policy of WOSM and takes decisions to advance the purpose and interests of the Scout Movement. It also elects the voting members of the World Scout Committee, admits new Member Organizations to the Movement, and decides the host countries of future World Scout Events.
