The Executive Committee will be held on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 April in Moscow, hosted by our Russian affiliate, the Russian Union of Journalists (RUJ).
As you now know, this meeting will also be the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the IFJ (Article 29 of the Constitution), writes in a special letter to all member-states Anthony Bellanger, MFJ General Secretary.
IFJ will send the practical details of the AGM, agreed by the Administrative Committee in the coming days. The meeting in Moscow will, in particular, approve the audited accounts and the proposed budget.
Affiliates, who are not in arrears with their payments, have the right to send an observer and to submit motions - which must be received at least two months before the AGM – by 28 February 2017. All instructions regarding the observers will also be sent in the next few days.
For affiliates who so wish, we can send you the unaudited IFJ accounts for the time being – the audited accounts will be available during March, as in previous years.
