Congress

A congress is a formal meeting of representatives from different countries (or by extension constituent states), or independent organizations (such as different trade unions).

The term Congress was chosen for the United States Congress to emphasize the status of each state represented there as a self-governing unit. Subsequently to the use of congress by the US legislature, the term has been adopted by many states within unions, and by unitary nation-states in the Americas, to refer to their legislatures.
