All IIA members are invited to join us at an EGM of the Irish Internet Association. The EGM takes place on Thursday, October 27th, 2016 in the Presentation Room, Digital Depot, Thomas Street, Dublin 8.
The IIA will be 20 years old in January. It is broadly agreed that the original remit of the organisation has been met. It is the view of the board that we are at a critical juncture for the organsiation.
Your input as a valued member of this association is vitally important to these deliberations and we, the board, strongly urge you to attend as it is critical to the future of the organisation.
There are 2 areas of focus for the EGM:
1. The EGM is being called to discuss the future path of the IIA into 2017. The board will lay out the current situation of the organisation and how it is currently performing and look for input from its members to identify the best path forward into 2017. This is the beginning of a consultative process to be held before the AGM in November. We would welcome your input as a valued member of the organisation.
2. To define what special resolutions needed to be brought to the AGM for decision at that point.
It is the board’s intention that members will take away with them the information provided at the meeting, reflect on it and that some of you will present back proposals for the future of the organisation in advance of the AGM. Once these have been reviewed they will be put in front of the members for discussion and agreement at the AGM itself.
Special Resolutions for discussion:
The Membership will be asked to consider the following special resolutions which will be put forward for a decision at the upcoming AGM which will be held in late November :
(a) adopt a new remit for the association or
(b) resolve to wind up the organisation. Should no proposals be received before the AGM the board will make a decision with the membership at the AGM on the future of the organisation.
To register to attend the EGM please RSVP.
