The members of the UEA are entitled to establish permanent or temporary sections (departments) based on territorial relations or else.
The minimum number of founding members of a section is ten (10) UEA members.
A section is headed by a board of three, selected for a two-year period by a simple majority from and by the UEA members belonging to the section in question. The board of the section, including the head of it, will be elected within a month after the general assembly.
The statutes of the section will be approved by the executive board of the UEA, based upon a joint proposal of the section members. The statutes define the rights and obligations of the section and the powers and the rights of representation.
The section is obliged to conform to the statutes of the UEA and the resolutions of the management bodies.
