General Membership Assembly 2018
Opening Welcome by David Edwards, ISST President
It is a pleasure to open this General Membership Assembly (GMA) which is taking place online to allow all our members to participate. This Assembly is an important opportunity for the ISST to take stock of its activities over the past two years and to look forward to the challenges of the future.
An important purpose of the GMA is for the outgoing Executive Board members to, present a summary of their activities during the current term of office. This includes presenting for approval financial reports for the period since it took office in late 2016 and budgetary plans for the future; asking members to approve a number of changes to the ISST Statutes (the Executive Board may make and approve detailed regulations that govern the functioning of our Society, but items in the Statutes can only be changed following approval by a GMA); and asking members to approve some proposed appointments.
A further purpose of the GMA is to allow ISST members to interact with respect to the various proposals made by the Executive Board, propose items for the agenda and to comment on and make suggestions about the ISST’s directions in the future.
Between August 15th and September 15th all members will be able to comment on and contribute to discussions relevant to the functioning of the ISST on the blog page. They will also be able to review all relevant documents - many of which you should already have received by email. These documents which give the detailed background to the items you are asked to vote on, are also available on the GMA web page.
The final agenda for the GMA will be made available
From September 23rd to October 7th Full Members of the ISST will be able to record their votes on each of the items on which the Board is asking your approval. You will receive detailed instructions on how to go about this nearer the time.You will already have received a provisional agenda for the meeting.
