This proposal was submitted already at the 2015 General Assembly – and out of the active members who voted a vast majority voted in favour of the move. However, in order for such a decision to take effect we need to reach a 75% quorum of the active members (and only 67% of active members took part in the 2015 General Assembly) and therefore the very high quorum needed for the dissolution of the Association in Italy was missed by a handful of votes.

  • Membership consultation: – New Statute and Brussels move –

    Posted 28 April 2016

    The time of a new General Assembly is coming closer again. That is the time where you have the chance to decide on the most fundamental issues concerning our association. This year, the Board would like to submit to your decision again the very important question of moving the legal seat of the Association to Brussels. Last year, the very high quorum needed for the dissolution of the Association in Italy (75% of all active members) was missed by a handful of votes.

So make sure to sign up as an active member if you haven’t already, in order to participate in the General Assembly, and remember to vote!
