UPDATE 09-09-2020

Dear Colleague,

Our Royal Belgian Society for Surgery held its on-line General Meeting (postponed due to Covid-19) on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at 7.30 p.m.

The agenda of this General Meeting contained changes to the bylaws, on the one hand an extension of directorships (which already exist unofficially), and on the other hand the possibility of relief in case of force majeure such as the Covid-19 pandemic. These changes to the bylaws required the presence of two thirds of the members and a majority vote. Unfortunately, there was not enough attendance to be able to vote validly.

Our bylaws allow that in that case a second (extraordinary) General Meeting can be convened after at least fourteen days, which may deliberate and resolve validly, regardless of the number of members present or represented. The Board therefore wishes to submit the proposals for changes to the statute to this second extraordinary General Meeting, which will be organized on September 22, 2020 at 7.30 pm. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this meeting will  agian only take place online, via the following link on the ZOOM platform:

 Pre-registration is necessary. Only effective members (full members and title holders) have the right to vote. Each member entitled to vote may be represented by proxy by another member who is entitled to vote. The proxy must reach the secretariat by September 21, 2020 at the latest.  
The Board hopes to be able to welcome you numerous to this extraordinary General Meeting.

You can find the agenda as well as the proxy form in Dutch here and in French here, as required by the bylaws.

 

Dear Colleague,

Dear RBSS Member,

The Board of the Royal Belgian Society for Surgery invites you to the (due to Covid-19 postponed) General Meeting of our association. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this meeting will be online only on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at 7:30 PM.

Pre-registration is mandatory via https://tinyurl.com/GA2020RBSS

Only effective members (full members and titulary members) have the right to vote. Each member entitled to vote may be represented by proxy by another member who is entitled to vote. The proxy must reach the secretariat before August 31, 2020.

As you can see in the invitation and the agenda (here in NL and here in FR), the agenda contains changes to the bylaws, on the one hand extending mandates (which already exist unofficially), on the other hand, the possibility of extension in case of force majeure such as the Covid-19 pandemic. Amendments to the bylaws require the presence of two thirds of the members and a majority vote. If the two thirds of the members are not present, a second (extraordinary) meeting will be convened after fourteen days, which may deliberate and resolve validly, regardless of the number of members present or represented.


The Board hopes to be able to welcome many of you to this General Meeting.

Please find the invitation and agenda here in NL and in FR.
