    Communiqué about the most important aspects of the ANCCE by-laws


    It is important that relevant aspects of the Association by-laws be clarified in an effort to facilitate the election process that will begin within a few weeks.  Article 13. Membership rights and obligations

    13.1 Rights

    Full members have the right to:

    a) Attend and take part in, with voice and vote, the General Assemblies and other meetings of the governing bodies they are members of, abiding by the rules or instructions determined by these bodies with regards to the agenda and their celebration.”

    c) Elect the members of the governing bodies, representatives or specific executive posts within the Association, provided the said member has been a member for at least twelve (12) months starting from the date of the final admission as a member.

    d) To be eligible for the posts within the governing bodies, representatives or specific executive posts within the Association, provided the said member has been a member of at least five (5) years, starting from the date of the final admission as a member.

    “The exercise of the right recognized in section a) shall be automatically withheld when the member fails to be in good standing in terms of the payment of their dues or if they have any other outstanding debts with the Association”

    To comply with the requirement laid out in section c) of this article, the 15th of May 2009 will be the date from which the period of one year will be calculated.  All members who have been recognized as members since this date shall be free to exercise their right to vote. ELECTORAL RÉGIME
