Congress – The UCI’s supreme body
The Congress is the general meeting of UCI members and the International Federation’s supreme body. It meets every year, usually during the UCI Road World Championships.
The Congress takes decisions in accordance with the UCI Constitution. In particular, it decides on the annual report of the UCI Management Committee, the annual accounts of the previous year and the budget for the following year. It also has several exclusive powers and duties, including admitting or excluding National Federations, appointing members of the Ethics Commission and amending the UCI Constitution.
It holds elections every four years for the position of UCI President and for members of the UCI Management Committee.

Africa: 9 delegates
America: 9 delegates
