Geneva and resolved among others to hold a General Assembly (GA) of African Engineering Organisations in Nairobi, Kenya in April, 2012. The GA could not hold in April 2012 due to logistic issues and was eventually held on 8th May, 2012 at Kenyatta International Conference Centre, Nairobi, Kenya. The GA marked a beginning of a new era for the entire engineering family in Africa speaking with one voice as an international member of the World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO)

Names of countries that participated at General Assembly were as follows: The Republic of Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Malawi, Republic of South Africa, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda and Zambia

The FAEO Constitution was discussed, debated and was unanimously accepted and adopted in final draft format, and was to take effect from the 8th of May, 2012. The accepted Constitution was the basis for conducting elections for representation in the Executive Committee of FAEO
