The main body of the Society is the General Assembly of representatives of the Member Societies. It convenes at least once a year and decides on constitutional and financial matters of the Society, hears the report of the Council and the statement of the Society’s auditor. Ten Members constitute a quorum. All Associate Members are eligible to attend the General Assembly as observer.
The 23rd EMS General Assembly convened as an online meeting on 31 August 2021. The minutes of this meeting are available below.
No decision about the time and place of 24th EMS General Assembly (2022) has been taken at this stage.
In addition to arranging the General Assembly around the Annual Meeting as in pre-COVID times, the options to hold the Assembly 24 as a virtual meeting also in 2022 as well as organising it later in the year have been considered; Council will consider the conditions and options in the first part of 2022.
