The Administrative Council is the representation of the General Assembly, when the Assembly is not in session. It is made up of five people according to the following interest groups:

  • A representative of the missionary organizations.
  • A representative of the German-Mennonite congregations, the representatives of the voluntary service and the women comittees.
  • A representative of the presidents of the Mennonite Colonies of the Central Chaco.
  • A representative of the Enlhet ethnic group (includes the Toba and Sanapaná ethnic groups).
  • A representative of the Nivaclé ethnic group.

At the beginning of each year, the Administrative Council elects a president, a vice president, and a secretary. The President of the council is simultaneously also the President of the ASCIM. The Administrative Council has a quorum if three of the five members are present at the meeting.

The faculties and obligations of the Administrative Council are:
