EBMA's 10th Annual General Membership Assembly, 3 June 2011

EBMA has just held its 10th Annual General Membership Assembly at 't Trefpunt in Voorthuizen, NL.

The members present acknowledged the financial statements with a net loss of €3,276.42 for 2010. All seven current board members were elected for another year, so were the two auditors. A budget for 2012 with an anticipated net profit of €300 was acknowledged. The bylaws' §3 was changed so that from now on all standing members, both supporting and active, have voting rights in our democratic organisation.

The goals for 2011/12 were noted as follows:
