Implementation of motions

If a motion to change the bylaws is approved at the AGM, the change is effective immediately. All other resolutions approved at the AGM will be reviewed by the Board of Directors in the year following the AGM. It is the responsibility of the Board to identify implications and determine the association’s ability to carry out the motion.

Due to a shortage of time and the fact that no members had questions for the forum, the session was cancelled.
