The General Assembly is the supreme body of the AGEPoly. It gathers all its members. It elects the Executive Board, decides on the Statutes’ modifications, and decides to create or dissolve Activity Commissions (the complete list of the General Assembly’s competences is available in the AGEPoly statutes). It gathers at least twice a year during Ordinary General Assemblies.
The General Assembly are preceded by the House of Representatives, which can refuse to add points to the agenda, and give their consultative advice on the motions and the Board candidates. It also has the power to vote on modifications of some of the AGEPoly’s regulations.

How to apply?
To the Executive Board: Send your application to email@example.com by 30 April at the latest, or by 14 May if there is only one candidate or less for a position. Applications will be updated as soon as possible here. We are organising an information session to introduce the job descriptions and answer any questions you may have. It will take place on Wednesday 21 April at 12:15 on zoom. If you are interested in applying or joining a team, we strongly advise you to attend and ask all your questions! The session will also be recorded and available among the GA documents.
To the General Control Commission or the Financial Audit Commission: Send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org or apply during the GA (we prefer if this is done in advance so that the digital GA runs smoothly).
To the Operational Control Commission: During the GA! As there are eligibility criteria, it is complicated to apply in advance.
If you wish to add an item to the agenda of the General Assembly, you can write to email@example.com before 30 April 2021. This item will be discussed in the CdR and must be accepted by both bodies (representatives and commissions) present at the CdR. If the added item is accepted by the CdR, the GA agenda is therefore modified and will be dealt with between items 9 and 10.
An amendment is :
- an alternative wording
- a change to the subject matter of the vote
- an addition directly related to the subject of the vote
The GA can propose amendments to items. They must be accepted or rejected, and in the order in which they were submitted. As the GA is by zoom, the collection is done via an electronic form (FramaForm), amendments that are not submitted in this way are not taken into account. Here is the procedure (to be found at all times also among the GA documents):
- Describe the amendment on the Framaforms available soon
- Raise your hand on zoom. As soon as you have the floor you can propose the amendment orally on the item under discussion. At this point the amendment is considered to be proposed, provided it has first been submitted on the GForm.
- The amendment is displayed on the screen and discussed by the Assembly
The amendments will then be voted on in the order in which they were proposed.
Notice from the House of Representatives (CdR)
The notice of the CdR on the agenda items will be available by 9 May (the CdR will take place on 5 May) in the GA documents.
