AGICOA’s members have been geographically dispersed ever since the organization was created. In the past, the only option open to members who were unable to attend the General Assembly in person was to appoint other members as proxies. Then, in 2020, we introduced the possibility of holding General Assembly meetings in person, remotely or in hybrid format. This change was intended to make it easier for more members to participate.
Time-zone differences could still make it difficult for some members to attend General Assembly meetings. With this in mind, and to make it even easier for members to exercise their voting rights in appointing the AGICOA Administrative Board, the General Assembly amended the association’s By-laws on May 23, 2023, to introduce an early electronic appointment process for Administrative Board members.
