Annual Event & AGM
The General Assembly of our association was held on Monday 14 May in the BGL BNP PARIBAS KIRCHBERG premises.
On the agenda that was communicated to you, there were several important points, including the change of the statutes in order to adapt them to the needs of an association the size of ICF Luxembourg and to make them comply with Luxembourg law on non-profit organizations.
The main points of evolution of the statutes concern:
the size of the Board of Directors: "5 to 7 members" instead of "7 to 9",
the office of Vice-President shall be abolished,
the obligation for members of the Board of Directors to be accredited members now concerns "the majority of the Board" and is required for the function of Chairman (President).
The introduction of a local contribution whose amount will be approved by the General Assembly on proposal of the Board of Directors. The amount has been set to 50 EUR and will be applicable as of 01 Jan 2019 and payable with the renewal of the membership.
The Minutes of this meeting will be available shortly.

1. Our association has 72 members as of 15/05/2018

Outlook for 2018/19 :
1. The ICF Luxembourg website was developed in 2013 and has been showing signs of weakness for several months and its maintenance requires more and more efforts.
A new site is under development and will be available in the fall.
The site's functionalities will be improved, and it will include a finer and more powerful business directory.
2. Monthly webinars are organized by ICF Synergie (a platform of francophone chapters) and are a great resource for members of our community.
Registration is possible via the ICF Luxembourg website.
These webinars allow you to earn CCEU's for free and can be viewed on ICF Synergie's YOU TUBE channel.
Synergie proposes a FB page and a Linked In Group as well.
3. Introduction of a local fee of 50 EUR
ICF Luxembourg is one of the only European chapters not having introduced this possibility, which exists with our neighbor chapters and varies from EUR 50 (for smaller chapters) and EUR 175 (for larger chapters).
In return for this national contribution, members will benefit from specific advantages:
Free admission to most of the monthly events organized by the association,
Preferential rates on future activities organized by the association,
Reduction to some major events organized by the association,
Free registration to a more efficient and powerful business directory on the new website under development, giving increased visibility to ICF Luxembourg members.
In addition to the specific advantages reserved for ICF Luxembourg members, this local subscription will enable our association to increase its visibility, to invite quality speakers and to develop our association.
