History[edit] Through the initiative of then-president of Mexico
Mexico
Miguel Alemán Valdés, the first congress of academies convened with the purpose of maintaining the integrity of and fostering the further growth of Spanish.[2] The meeting was held from April 23 to May 6, 1951 and resulted in the creation of the association[5] and its permanent commission[6]. The Royal Spanish Academy
Royal Spanish Academy
(Spanish: Real Academia Española or RAE) was not present at the initial meeting but participated in the permanent commission.[7] Ever since the second congress convened in 1956, the RAE has been a regular participant.[citation needed] In 2000 the association organized the School of Hispanic Lexicography and the Carolina Foundation to promote Spanish lexicography[citation needed], and together with the RAE, the association earned the Prince of Asturias Award for peace.[8] An academy for Equatorial Guinea
Equatorial Guinea
was created in 2013 and joined the association in 2016.[9] Works[edit] The collaboration between RAE and the other academies was expressed in the coauthorship, since the 22nd edition published in 2001, of the Dictionary of the Spanish Language (Spanish: Diccionario de la Lengua Española), and the 1999 edition of the Orthography (Spanish: Ortografía) was considered a true pan-Hispanic work. Joint projects include the editing of the Grammar (Spanish: Gramática) and the compilation of the Dictionary of Americanisms (Spanish: Diccionario de americanismos).[citation needed] Organization[edit] The association convenes every four years, led by a permanent commission composed of a president ( Darío Villanueva
Darío Villanueva
as of October 2017), secretary general (Francisco Javier Pérez as of October 2017), treasurer, and at least two board members drawn from the associated academies, whose nomination rotate annually.[1][10][11] During the Third Congress of Academies, held in Bogotá, Colombia, in 1960, an agreement was reached whereby the governments of countries with a member in the association would be obliged to provide financial support to their respective academies and the greater association.[12] Academies[edit]
