On June 22, 2022, we held our Annual General Meeting 2022 with elections for the board. President David Zeller, Vice President Petra Vorsteher and Secretary Nils Winkler have been re-elected for another two years. Treasurer Daniel Albrecht decided to step down for personal reasons and we are happy to have found a successor with the tax advisor Silke Kellner. The members present confirmed these votes unanimously.
Further, the AGM decided a number of changes to the Club´s statutes. The key changes are:
-when a Member is in default with membership fees for more than two weeks, all membership rights are paused until payment has arrived.
-the board is allowed to enter agreements for limited loans / credit for operational purposes.
-The AGMs in the future can be held as physical events, online or hybrid (adjusting to the pandemic).
-Votes at the AGM can executed only by a member, not by power of attorney. Presence required.
-We are now allowed by the statutes to publish a member directory (internal, only for Club members).
After the official part, our Honorary President, Consul General Darion Akins, held a powerful speech about the importance of the transatlantic relations in the times of international crisis and underlined the relevance of working with young people. The American Club is living German-American friendship every day.
