Payment is made on the basis of an annual unit of contribution and Category of Adherence - the annual dues are the product of the unit of The International Astronomical Union: Historial Perspective 19 contribution and the agreed multiplying factor associated with the Category of Adherence. It is up to each adhering country to choose its Category of Adherence and it is remarkable that proportionality with individual membership is broadly maintained by the Adhering Countries. Between General Assemblies, the affairs of the Union are managed by means of an annual meeting of the Executive Committee (of 10 members and 2 advisers) and in the interim by the General Secretary, assisted by the Assistant General Secretary.
