Dear EACD member,
As you know, the 32nd EACD Annual Meeting in Poznan, Poland has been postponed to 25-28 November 2020. Along with this postponement of the Annual Meeting, the General Management Committee decided to move the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to 26 November 2020.

Special General Meetings are held for the consideration of non-recurring business that requires approval by the members between AGMs. And similar to an AGM, all EACD members are allowed to attend and vote during a Special General Meeting.
Agenda of the EACD Special General Meeting
1. Roadmap to International not-for-profit association

Additional information: 1. Roadmap to International not-for-profit organisation
EACD is currently a charity organisation based in the United Kingdom. However, with EACD becoming more and more a pan-European organization, there was approval by the AGM in Paris last year to work out a road map towards changing the EACD organizational structure into an international, European non-governmental organisation. Given the possibilities and requirements and its strategic location, the intention was expressed to set up an 'international not for profit association’ in Brussels.
Following this decision at the AGM last year, a working group on this topic has been formed, which prepared a detailed road map towards this new structure. At the AGM in Paris it was decided to present the detailed road map towards this new organisational structure the year after to the members, upon which a final decision would be made.
As such, the Ordinary General Meeting will be organised to present the detailed roadmap towards changing the EACD organizational structure into an 'international not for profit association’ to the members, to consult them about the roadmap, and to let the members decide about whether or not to proceed with reforming the organizational structure of EACD from a charity organisation into an International Not-for-Profit Association.
The full roadmap documentation towards changing the EACD organizational structure into an 'international not for profit association’ will be published well in advance of this Special General Meeting at Edu.EACD.org.
We kindly invite you to attend the special general meeting to participate, to let hear your voice and to vote about this topic of utter importance for the organizational structure of the EACD.
Take care and our warmest regards,
EACD General Management Committee
