Dear Members, Friends of Accept – LGBT Cyprus,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to our Annual General Assembly on Saturday, 19 December 2015 in Nicosia at 10.00 at the Cleopatra Hotel in Nicosia where we will have the chance to celebrate together the new Civil Union law, a very important victory of the LGBTI community and the achievement of a pivotal goal of the organisation for the past years. We will analyse the actions taken as well as what the future holds, together with friends and allies.

The topics up for discussion during the Annual General Assembly are:

  • Celebratory Part with Guests (a)
  • Presentation, discussion and approval of the actions of the Management Board
  • Presentation, discussion and approval of financial report
  • Any other business
  • Elections for the new Management Board (b)

(a) Celebratory Part

The celebratory part of the Assembly will be open to the public and press and will be attended by a number of guests. There will be special arrangements for any members who do not wish to be photographed during the event.

(b) Elections for the new Management Board

At the end of the General Assembly an Electoral General Assembly will follow where eight members will be elected to the new Management Board. A separate email with details of the process will follow shortly.

At the Annual General Assembly any member can:

  • Suggest the introduction of new Regulations
  • Request modification or cancellation of existing Regulations
  • Raise any issues or motions concerning the operation or the objectives of the Organisation.

Any members, who wish to add items on the Agenda, should contact the board at [email protected]. All Full Members with settled obligations have the right to vote during the Annual General Assembly. Members who cannot attend the General Assembly can be represented by someone else with a signed proxy form. Proxy forms can be sent to the members by email.
