ABBA consists of 18 Member Countries, a Management Committee (MC) responsible for administrative decisions, and four Working Groups responsible for the scientific work. The MC meets usually twice a year in MC Meetings to decide on administrative matters. The Working Groups can meet in Workshops and smaller Working group meetings as needed. The Core Group is a smaller unit authorised to make quick decisions on smaller matters. The Core Group often discusses matters in Teleconferences.
