The Conference of Ambassadors

All member states are represented at the headquarters by means of an ambassador. These ambassadors meet in Conference whenever necessary; the conference prepares decisions.

In alphabetical order of country names in English (not official state names), each ambassador serves a six month term as Secretary General. For the Vice-Secretary General, the reverse alphabetical order applies, but one person can not be Secretary General and Vice-Secretary General at the same time; in the event that this would occur, the Vice-Secretary General skips to the next ambassador. The Secretary General and his or her Office are in charge of the management of the headquarters as well as the organisation of the Conference and meetings of the General Assembly.

Before 21 September 2012, the Secretary General was known as the Chairman/-woman of the Conference of Ambassadors; the alphabetical order restarted from the beginning after the Ísðor Treaty entered into force.
