DS as president, one page, 15.25 x 11.5, September 14, 1965. President Johnson appoints Henry DeWolf Smyth “an Alternate Representative of the United States of America to the Ninth Session of the General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency.” Signed at the conclusion by Johnson and countersigned by Secretary of State Dean Rusk. Double matted to an overall size of 20.25 x 17. In fine condition, with some scattered light edge creases and a shade of toning. The General Conference is the IAEA’s lesser policy making body. The General Conference is made up of all 142 member states and meets once a year, in September, to approve the actions and budgets passed on from the Board of Governors. The General Conference also approves the nominee for Director General and requests reports from the Board on issues in question. Each member receives one vote. Issues of budget, Statute amendment and suspension of a member’s privileges require a two- thirds majority and all other issues require a simple majority. The main function of the General Conference is to serve as a forum for debate on current issues and policies. LOA John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and R&R COA.
