1st 2015 Assembly on finances and 2015 Events

The first 2015 IAOA Assembly is being held in April in order to discuss the 2014 Financial Statement and the 2015 Budget. Moreover, a ballot during April 09-15 is part of the Assembly and is legally required in order to approve the 2014 Financial Statement. Details can be found on the ballot wiki page and members find the corresponding announcement by the President via the membership mailing list [iaoa-member].

Accordingly, these days all IAOA members are addressed and kindly invited to review and discuss the documents. In the ballot we need to meet the quorum of 50%+1 of the membership. If you are an IAOA member: please log in to the Member's Area, proceed via Utilities to the personal voting page and please cast your vote!
