Extraordinary General Meeting 2015

During the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Friday 27th February 2015, it was decided that an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) should be held in order to address a couple of pertinent issues which could not be addressed during the meeting in February. The first issue relates to the decision taken by council regarding the introduction of the role of a permanent international secretary. According to the AGM minutes, this had to be discussed in detail at council level and reported during this EGM. The second issue was the introduction of a legal advisor in accordance to the latest revised statute. The council had to find a legal advisor which would then be approved by members during this EGM.

An EGM is therefore being called for 26th November 2015. The meeting shall be held at the Professional Centre, Gzira at 1800hrs. Please note that only paid up members are entitled to vote. Membership fees will be accepted before the meeting commences.
