Important rules on the General Assembly

According to the By-Laws of AmCham, Article III. paragraph 3.1.8. “A General Assembly shall have a quorum if 20 % of the Members who are entitled to vote at General Assemblies are present. If the General Assembly does not have a quorum, another General Assembly can be called by the President no earlier than 30 minutes and no later than 30 days after the original General Assembly with the same agenda as the original General Assembly, and such second General Assembly shall be entitled to make resolutions by simple majority of those Members who are present at such second General Assembly if the possibility for such second General Assembly was communicated to the members in the invitation to the original General Assembly.”
Therefore, if there is no quorum at 9:00am, another General Assembly will be called for 9:30 am on the same day (December 4th, 2023) with the same Agenda and such repeated General Assembly shall be entitled to make resolutions by a simple majority of those Members who are present at such repeated General Assembly.
