SMA at International Level
At central level the Society is governed by the Superior General. He is guided by the General Council consisting of the Vicar General and two General Councillors. The Superior General and the General Council are elected by the General Assembly after consultation with the entire membership of the Society.
They reside at the SMA Generalate in Rome. – http://www.smainter.org
