The CIM Assembly of Delegates is held every two years and brings together the CIM Delegates from each of the OAS Member States in order to examine issues of hemispheric concern and propose and debate policy and programmatic solutions. The CIM Delegates are usually the government authorities responsible for women's and/or gender issues.

At each Assembly, the OAS Member States submit national reports on their advances in terms of the implementation of the Inter-American Program on the Promotion of Women's Human Rights and Gender Equity and Equality (IAP) as well as the specific themes of the Assembly
