Important Calls related to the 19th General Assembly

Click on the links below to download instructions and deadlines for the following matters linked to the 19th General Assembly:

Voting rights, proxies and payment of membership dues

Voting rights are based on the number of paid-up members per Committee at 31/12/2016 - a table has been sent to the National Committee Presidents showing the votes attributed to each National Committee. Voting members at the General Assembly shall be designated by their National Committee in accordance with Article 9-a and 13-d-4 of the ICOMOS Statutes. Voting members duly nominated may give a proxy to another voting member of their National Committee. No member shall have more than four proxy votes in addition to his/her own.

To fully exercise their voting rights at the General Assembly, National Committees must meet the following conditions:

  • Send in their voting lists and full definite proxies (scanned signed copies are sufficient) one month before the start of the General Assembly – that is at the latest by 11 November 2017. National Committees must also be up to date with their full membership fee payments, including for the current year, by this date.
  • Minor changes in proxies will only be accepted in a case of “force majeure” preventing a voting member at the last minute from attending the General Assemblies (in cases of subsequent illness, misadventure or emergency). Such last minute changes have to be reported to the International Secretariat in Delhi not later than 72 hours before the start of the General Assembly.
