IAOA first 2020 Virtual Assembly Announcement

Dear IAOA members,

Our Statutes [1] require the Association’s Financial Statement to be formally approved every year by a (virtual) assembly.

This is a formal invitation to participate in the first 2020 virtual assembly, whose main purpose is to discuss and approve the 2019 Financial Statement. The report from the Auditors on the Financial Statement and the proposed budget for 2020 will also be made available.

The auditors are currently examining the financial documents.
We will send a brief notification as soon as the Financial Statement,  approved by the auditors, is available, by April 16. Then the discussion on it (and possibly other issues concerning the Association) can take place until April 23, 2020. Finalized details will be published by April 28, 2020. The voting period will be April 29-May 6, 2020 — save these dates!

Everyone with an active IAOA membership is eligible to vote. Detailed voting instructions will be available from the Assembly page [2] and shall be distributed anew at ballot opening.

The Assembly may approve the Financial Statement by simple majority; there is no quorum. The outcome of the voting will be announced to the members’ mailing list by May 8, 2020.

Laure Vieu
President, IAOA
