Role of IOC members
IOC members are the IOC’s representatives in their respective countries, and not their countries’ delegates within the IOC. They are men and women who have competed in the Olympic Games, are captains of industry or representatives from the worlds of sport and business. They are all volunteers.
 
 IOC members meet once a year at a general assembly, or Session, the supreme body of the organisation. At these Sessions, the members take decisions concerning the institution and the Olympic Games, such as the choice of host cities of the Games, changes to the Olympic Charter, electing the IOC President, Vice-Presidents and Executive Board members, and co-opting new members.
