  5) SWG Internal Rules SA2018

In the Autumn Assembly in Budapest, The new EMSA Statutes have been adopted. In order for a clean transition, some changes need to be implemented into the EMSA Internal Rules as well. During the General Assembly, the motion for the Small Working Group has passed as you can see the description below:

“to immediately open a call for a working group supervised by the Secretary General to prepare a motion for the next ordinary assembly that revises and cleans up the Internal Rules accordingly, including the option to change certain parts of the statutes only by confirmation of a national vote as foreseen by the old statutes.”

Explanation: Since the new Statutes no longer define National Vote in case of certain Statutory changes we propose to move those rules (as defined in the still valid Statutes) into the Internal Rules as well as to define that that new part of the IR can only be changed with a Statutory quorum and majority. This is important as to keep National Vote system active in important Statutory changes.

Take these chances to step up your game into the European Level! Looking forward to your applications!

All candidatures should be sent to secretary@emsa-europe.eu until 23.59 p.m. CEST (Brussels time) of 20.10.2017.
