Results of the ICOMOS July 2020 General Assembly

GA2020 July YouTubeOn 23 and 24 July 2020, the first ever virtual ICOMOS General Assembly was held. 

Called by the President, at the request of a majority of the members of the Board, the sole purpose of this General Assembly was to seek the agreement of the ICOMOS membership to hold all forthcoming 2020 statutory meetings as virtual meetings (i.e. the Triennial General Assembly, Advisory Committee, Board and Bureau meetings), taking into account the current global situation.We are pleased to advise that more than 90% of the voting members voted in favour of the Board’s proposal.

The meeting took place via ZOOM, and the voting via ZOOM Poll (for the procedural resolutions GA2020-7-1 to 4) and via the Euro-vote Platform (for the main resolution GA2020-7-5). 

Over 900 ICOMOS members registered for the online event and over 500 attended.
