IHEYO Extraordinary General Assembly 2008:
8th November, Potsdam, Germany
IHEYO herewith announces its Extraordinary General Assembly 2008, taking place on 8th November in Potsdam, Germany. Although our General Assembly 2008 was successfully held in Washington D.C. as part of IHEYOs Youth Session hosted by the IHEU Wold Congress, IHEYO missed to realize that 2/3 of our full members have been present. As more than the half of our full member had transferred their votes to another organisation or have been present on their own, it was possible to vote for a new Executive Committee of IHEYO, but not for a change of the bylaws.
For that reason IHEYO is organizing its Extraordinary General Assembly to vote legally on all discussed matters out of our first GA. The venue of the meeting will be: Jugendherberge House of Youth Schulstrasse 9 14482 Potsdam http://www.djh-berlin-brandenburg.de/index.php/djh/Hostel/id/950/site/Info/lang/de You can also book a room at the same venue for your stay, but please note that IHEYO will not reimburse any travel or staying costs. So be aware of your own expenditures. For a better organization, we would like to receive your confirmation and number of participants to the event that we can take care of your reservations.
