IJA General Meeting
The IJA has received a proposal to amend the Paragraph 10 (Election Procedure) of the IJA Constitution regarding the duration of both Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson holding of their positions. Proposed amendment:
‘7. Both the Chairperson and the Vice-Chairperson shall be elected by the Annual General Meeting and shall hold office for a one year period and may be re-elected but may not hold the same office for more than three consecutive years.’
As per Paragraph 13 of the IJA Constitution, A General Meeting of the Association, other than an Annual General Meeting, may be convened by giving to the members fourteen days notice of such meeting and specifying the purpose, time and venue during which a resolution will be put to the vote.
The IJA proposes that the IJA General Meeting takes place on Wednesday, 24th March 2021 at 3 p.m. – before the start of the IJA AGM 2021.
