Virtual Annual General Members Meeting & Convivial Online-Gathering
In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Board have agreed that our next members meeting will be held as a fully virtual meeting. This way, we can prevent potential health issues, travel circumstances and cost implications. The club law was temporarily changed under the Covid-19 crisis and allows us such virtual meetings and votings until end of 2021 without any reference in the existing by-laws.
In addition to the formal part, we are planning to continue with a more convivial framework program
weeks and build a network of assistance and help, in which
everyone can be supported. May we also be fair and open,
communicate with one another and have the courage to be
humanity and cooperation to the test. Let us overcome it without
anxiousness or egoism.
