Extraordinary General Meeting – 15 September

Isabel Summers, elected as Treasurer of Brussels Labour in April 2010, has had to stand down from the position as she has moved to London. The vacant position will now be subject of an election at an Extraordinary General Meeting on Wednesday 15 September. The decision to hold an EGM is in accordance with the Constitution of the Branch, adopted at the Annual General Meeting of 29 March 2000.

Brussels Labour members have been sent a nomination form for this election. If you have not received one and you are a member of Brussels Labour, please contact the Secretary to request one. Nomination forms must be returned to the Secretary by 1800 on Wednesday 8 September 2010. Please note that candidates must be members of Labour International at the time of the election.

The EGM will take place on Wednesday 15 September from 1945 to 2000, at Arthur’s, Rue de Trèves 26, 1050 Brussels.

Immediately following the EGM, Maria Damanaki, the Commissioner for Fisheries, will speak to the branch on the European debt crisis – lessons for the left.
