Of course nominations are possible during the General Assembly however, please note that only candidates present during the General Assembly are eligible for election.
Only members who have paid their dues (annual membership fee) may and have a right to vote at the General Assembly
The following issues will be on the Agenda:
- New Members of the Offices
There will be vacant positions for members of the Scientific Office, Education Office and Network Office. The EUPSA Executive Board invites eligible members to send their application for vacant positions in the Offices to the Chairmen of the Offices (short CV and list of publications). Decisions will be made during the Meeting of each Office on June 12th, 2019.
- Affirmation of the new Chairman of the Network Office : the election will be made by the members of the Office and affirmed by the Executive Board and the General Assembly
- Election of the EUPSA President Elect.
According to our Statutes, the Executive Board will make a proposal to the General Assembly.
All eligible members are invited to submit comments, suggestions and/or recommendations four weeks in advance to the President or the Honorary Secretary. Only candidates present during the General Assembly are eligible for election.
- Budget and Balance presentation
We have prepared a presentation, including all the recommendations of our financial accountant and External Auditors
- Membership Fee:
EUPSA is currently a very active association and performs many educational activities. These activities need to be financially supported by EUPSA since many of these activities are being carried out in Eastern European Countries for educational purposes. During the last years it has becoming more difficult to get support from medical industries and companies for congress and workshops. Nevertheless EUPSA has organized congresses with reasonable registration fees and has tried to keep all expenses at lowest possible levels. Thus the Society’s income mainly relies on Membership fees. According to our financial advisors to assure a positive balance, we need to ask our members for an increase of membership fee. We propose an augmentation of the annual fee from 75 to 100 Euros. Considering the membership fee of National Association of many European Countries, the proposed fees is quite below these limits.
- Future Congresses
We are proud to announce that we received several proposals for hosting the EUPSA Annual Meeting, the different bids will be discussed inside the Executive Board Meeting and the decision affirmed by the General Assembly.
- Changes in the Statues
Due to the new EUPSA financial address there are some changes in the statues that will be reported at the General Assembly.
We hope to see you numerous at the General Assembly in Belgrade.
