The ALDE Council is basically the smaller version of congress. The Member Organisations have a smaller number of delegates; LYMEC has for example ten Congress delegates and one Council delegate. The Council handles membership issue, finances and urgency resolutions in-between congresses. At the fringes of the Council meeting the ALDE bureau holds a meeting. LYMEC president joins as ex-officio member.
