The American Commission for the Elderly is the youngest of all the Commissions. The role played by the Mutual Association of Agents of Organizations for the Elderly (AMAOTE, by its Spanish acronym) in Argentina has been pivotal. It is an organization that has been elected to chair CADAM as to undertake actions to promote studies, training sessions, and projects across the Americas and the Caribbean concerning solutions for a fairer old age.

The Inter-American Conference on Social Security (CISS) is an international organization that was formally created in 1942. In its 79+ years of existence, it has worked on Social Security and Welfare in the Americas.

Pursuant to its Bylaws, the Conference consists of foundational bodies, such as: a) the General Assembly; b) the Standing Committee; c) the General Secretariat; d) the American Commissions on Social Security (CASS); e) the Inter-American Center on Social Security Studies (CIESS); f) the Controller’s Office; and g) the Sub-Regions..

CASS are bodies specialized in relevant topics of interest to the Americas and the Caribbean, discussing relevant matters that are cross-sectional with Social Security. CASS are the technical support bodies coordinated by CISS as to meet its goals and targets. CISS currently has six Commissions.
