2016 General Assembly
It is with great pleasure that we invite delegates to participate in the International Co-operative Alliance Meeting of Members (General Assembly) to be held in Québec City, Canada in conjunction with the 3rd International Summit of Cooperatives. The Meeting of Members will take place on Monday 10 October 2016, beginning at 15:00 local time and expected to adjourn by 16:00 local time.
The draft agenda in Québec this October will be as follows:
- Hold an election for a member of the Board of Directors following the election of Ms Monique Leroux as President of the Board
- Approve the annual audited accounts for 2015 and discharge the auditor
- Discharge the members of the Board for 2015
- Approval of the minutes from the General Assembly in Antalya, Turkey in 2015
- Ratify as required elections of sectoral organisation chairs and board members
- Ratify as required any regional president elections and amendments to regional rules
This Meeting of Members is held every other year to primarily accept the audit and to perform any other required actions. The majority of decisions will be reserved for the biennial General Assembly that will be convened in conjunction with our Global Conference, which will next occur in 2017 in Malaysia.
The documentation for the meeting is available below.
Members do not need to register to attend the Summit in order to attend the Meeting of Members, but you must inform us if you will be attending in order to access the conference centre. If you wish to attend the Summit, visit www.intlsummit.coop to learn more.
Given that candidates will not be making presentations during the Meeting of Members, they have been given an opportunity to submit a brief video. The videos and briefings are on this page: http://ica.coop/en/media/news/alliance-board-elections-2017-0
