Extra-ordinary General Assembly in Belgrade on September 24

For members only

Telecentre Europe will hold an extra-ordinary General Assembly on September 24, 2015, at 16:00, following the first day of the Annual Conference in Belgrade (Hotel Hyatt Regency Belgrade, Milentija Popovica 5, Belgrade, 11070 Serbia).

Telecentre Europe’s Board proposed a list of important amendments in the organization statutes during the last General Assembly (GA) held in Brussels in February 2015. Based on the feedback and comments received from members and from legal consultants, these have been now finalised. In order to approve the amended statutes, Telecentre Europe is organising an extraordinary GA during the Annual Conference (TEAC) in Belgrade. Please consult the amendments here.

General Assembly requires the presence of decision makers from the official member organizations and will be held in English.

Quorate and representation:

According to Article 19.2 from the Statutes, “decisions to amend these Statutes and/or to dissolve Telecentre-Europe must receive a majority of two thirds of the votes of the members present or represented, while for these purposes, the General Assembly shall not be deemed to be properly convened unless two thirds of the members are present or represented at the meeting. The notice for such meeting must be sent to each member three months in advance and, in cases of an amendment being part of the agenda, shall contain the proposed amendment.”
