The European Forum is organised as a vereniging (association) under Dutch law. On this page you can download the Statutes and Internal Regulations as put down at the Chamber of Commerce.
1. Basic Requirements
Your Group is a Member Group of the European Forum and has paid the membership fee due (invoices are sent out in the first quarter of the year).
Before the AGM, your delegates hand the signed Mandate Form to the EF’s secretary and receive their voting cards based on the size of your group.
With the voting cards, your delegates can vote at the AGM.
4. Frequently Asked Questions
Who can be a delegate for our group?
Anyone you choose and empower through the Mandate Form. Legally, they do not even have to be a member of your group. But of course, someone who is active in your group
knows more about your wishes and preferences.
What do I do if my group has forgotten to send the Mandate Form?
If you have a signed copy with you, that is perfectly fine. If you don’t, send an e-mail with a blank mandate form to your group and have them send a filled in and signed version (pdf or similar) to our Secretary before the AGM.
What happens if my group has not paid the membership fee?
The fee is due before the start of the AGM. Groups that have not paid can’t vote. You can settle the fee in cash with the treasurer before the start of the AGM.
