The IARU isn't even a "small piece" of the ITU.  IARU is an umbrella 
organisation of national radio societies, of which ARRL represents USA, RSGB 
represents the UK, REF represents France, RAC  represents Canada, WIA 
represents Australia, etc.

You could compare the relationship between IARU and ITU, to the relationship 
between ARRL and the FCC.  IARU attends these conferences as a lobbying 
agency for amateur radio, just as the shortwave broadcasting proponents 
lobby for HF broadcast interests.  There is nothing "official" about IARU 
any more than ARRL has any "official" standing with the FCC.
