§ 12   The General Assembly (GA)


  1. The General Assembly (GA) consists of representatives from the member federations and member organisations. These delegates are elected and sent by their respective associations. A transfer of voting rights is permissible within the underlying guidelines. The GA is the decisive body of the Association. The General Assembly can make decisions without consideration for the actual number of participants.


2.   These members have such voting rights corresponding to the number of members in their respective countries. These voting rights are as follows:


      - Members with less than 100 people                        -           1 vote

      - Members with 101 to 500 people                -           2 votes

      - Members with 501 to 800 people                -           4 votes

      - every further 100 people over 800 people   -           1 vote (starting at 900)


3.   The GA is chaired by the Chairman, or in his absence the Vice Chairman or another member of the inner Board. The Assembly determines the chair if no Board member is present. During elections the GA chair has to be handed to an election committee for the duration of the election and temporary discussion. The election committee consists of 2 people. This committee takes over the chair of the GA until the Chairman is elected and supervises the secret election of the Board.
