AIEGL Invitation To The XVth International Congress


According to  Art. 6 of the Statutes of AIEGL, the secretary general and the president would like to invite all active members of AIEGL to the XVth International Congress from 28 August to 1 September 2017 and especially to the Assemblée générale of our association, which will be held on 31 August 2017.

The program of this general assembly will be sent out to you in May after the preparatory meeting of the Board. Important points of our agenda will be:
– Reports of the officers on their activity in the last quinquennium
– Elections of the officers and the members of the international committee
– Elections of the verificateurs des comptes
– Electronic voting
– Nomination of honorary members
– New definition of the annual fees
– Discussion of proposals about the place where the future Congress in 2022 is to be held

We would like to encourage all active and eligible members to be nominated for a position  and who would like to play an active part in our association. Further nominations may be sought at the time of the Congress itself.

All AIEGL members are urgently asked to register for the Congress as soon as possible, since the participation fees are significantly reduced up to 31 March 2017. See:
