The plenary

 

The goal of the event is to facilitate communication at the international level for all local groups of BEST and vote upon proposals regarding the future of the student organization such as the election of the new international board, the strategy and the long-term planning for the next three years, accepting and excluding local groups from the organization, establishing new or discontinuation of old partnerships with other organizations.
