Hi everyone!

It is high time to have our General Assembly for 2021.
We will organize it online, due to the Covid situation on Wednesday 24th of March at 8pm Irish time.
As we are hoping a maximum attendance, you are all welcome to join, but only registered members will have voting rights.
The Agenda will be the Following

1. Minutes of the previous AGM. Vote to accept minutes
2. Presentation of President report and treasurer Account. Vote to accept reports
3. Election of new officers
4. Motions for discussion (and vote)
5. Any other business

I am now looking for Motions you would like to discuss and applications for the Officers role.
I took the Presidency temporarily after Eoghan resigned. I am happy to go on next year if there are no other candidates.
Same situation for Padraig as Secretary.

I want to have a few topics discussed during AOB:
– 2021 budget
– membership
– status of the various tournaments for 2021
– website status update

but feel free to send me more before the assembly.
I will also circulate accounts, reports and link to the online meeting beforehand.
I also want to thank Eoghan for helping me organizing this first Assembly.

Philippe Renaut, IGA President
