Annual General Meeting

This year, our EFRJ membership will gather together in Berlin on 1 June for the EFRJ Annual General Meeting (AGM). The agenda can be downloaded here.

Recently, members have been asked to vote on the changes in the EFRJ Constitution, as proposed during last year’s AGM in Leiden.

REGISTER HERE to the AGM and/or seminar! Registrations will close on 24 May.

If you cannot attend the AGM and you are a full member (i.e. with full voting rights), we kindly invite you to participate by giving a proxy to another individual or organisational member with full membership status. In practice this means:

  • You must write and sign a document in which you express that another EFRJ member will vote on your behalf. On this document, you must state the following: “I, your full name, authorise full name of the person/organisation to which you give your proxy vote to vote on my behalf at the 2017 General Meeting to be held in Berlin (Germany) on 1 June 2017. Date, place, your signature
  • Please note that any member with full membership status can only act as a proxy for a maximum of 5 other full members and that the person/organisation to which you have given your proxy vote should bring the signed (original or scanned) document to the AGM and hand it over to the staff of the EFRJ Secretariat.

It is important that members with full voting rights participate (also via proxy) since this AGM will be used to make some important constitutional changes, as mentioned above.

Please note that the Values & Standards Working Group will meet before the AGM: feel free to contact us if you are willing to join! Find here more info about the selected candidates.

The AGM on the evening of 1 June will be followed on 2 June by a one-day expert seminar on intercultural issues in RJ, free of charge for EFRJ members*! If you wish to attend the seminar without becoming a member of the EFRJ, the registration fee is 55 Euros (plus 10 euros for online payments).

You can apply now for the EFRJ membership in order to benefit from the free entrance to this seminar. Membership fees differ for individual and organisational members. New in 2017: organisational members of the EFRJ can send up to 5 representative to participate to the seminar in Berlin!!!
