by Biel Pubill Soler in Meetings

On 5 May  2020 we announced the suspension of the General Assembly to be held in August in Brittany due to international health alarm. We also informed you of the Council of Administration intention to hold this Assembly by videoconference.

Our legal advisor, Mr. Vicente Javaloyes, informs us that French legislation (our association is registered in France) gives validity to the convocation of the General Assembly using new technologies as long as it is held before 31 July, the final date of the state of alarm in France.

Dear colleagues:

As a result of the international health alert caused by COVID-19, the Lorient Inter-Celtic Festival has been suspended. For the same reason, the FALSAB Confederation has resigned from organising the General Assembly planned for August 2020 in Brittany, coinciding with the 90th anniversary of its foundation. Supporting FALSAB’s decision, the AEJeST Council of Administration agreed in its last meeting, to suspend definitively the AG2020 in a face-to-face way, and to consult the legal adviser the possibility of calling it on line at the end of the summer giving validity to its agreements. However, in the event that the agreements of this online GA are not valid, the CA will propose an online meeting of all the members, on an experimental basis, in order to know its functioning in case it is considered appropriate to include its future use in the Internal Regulations.
