2016 Elections - Results

The Alliance held a Meeting of Members (General Assembly) in conjunction with the 3rd International Summit of Cooperatives, in Québec City, Canada, on 10 October 2016.

With the establishment of the Alliance in Belgium, the Alliance is now required to convene an annual meeting of the members. This annual meeting is primarily to accept the audit and to perform any other required action. The majority of decisions will be reserved for the biennial General Assemblies that are convened in conjunction with our Global Conference, to be held every two years.
