The 2020 General Assembly and Board Election

Between February 17, 2020 and March 28 April 10 [extended due to the Covid-19 situation], 2020, the Plurality University Network held its first General Assembly and Board election. This event was open to members and happened online.

The General Assembly is now over:

  • The Activity Report was approved unanimously; The Financial Report was approved unanimously, minus one abstention.
  • Among 14 candidates, 9 were elected and will now form the Plurality University Network’s Supervisory Board:
    • Ayodele Arigbabu
    • Jorge Camacho
    • Mary Anne Mohanraj
    • Mimi Mondal
    • Huiying Ng
    • Salik Shah
    • Ketty Steward
    • Brigitte van der Sande
    • Regina Kanyu Wang

According to the Statutes (French / English), the General Assembly needs to take three formal decisions:

  1. Approve the 2019 Activity Report and 2020 Action Plan
  2. Approve the 2019 Accounts
  3. Elect the Board, which means we need candidates! Those who wish to stand for the board needed to declare themselves before March 13. The vote takes place between March 14 and April 10.

Also, we want the General Assembly to be a place for substantive discussion on what U+ should become, what it should do, and how.

Most discussions will happen on Slack, via the #2020generalassembly channel.
