Explanation of the items
Financial risk for the September-October 2021 CdA and CdD events
As you may have noticed, health measures are easing and, as far as events are concerned, we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. However, as we have known since the beginning of the pandemic, it is unpredictable: the risks of cancellation still exist. However, there is no such thing as cancellation insurance for COVID, and both the CdD and the commissions need to be able to provide some financial security to enable them to organise their events. Therefore, the GA accepted some measures that would allow the use of AGEPoly’s substantial financial assets to cover the risks of cancellation due to health reasons.
What is a General Assembly?
What is the purpose of a General Assembly?
The General Assembly is the supreme body of 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.
Functioning of the 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.
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.
