Due to the persisting COVID-19 pandemic, a formal Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held online in order to comply with Belgian law.

The AGM began with our Vice-Chairman, Christian Velten-Jameson, outlining the activities of the Board over the past twelve months, followed by comprehensive financial information. The delegates unanimously approved the extension of the mandates of the current Board members until the end of 2021, but with the intention to hold an Extraordinary General Meeting in October when a new Board will be elected.

A final decision on the location of the October meeting – either in London or online – will be made in late August. JOIN delegates will be kept informed in a timely manner.
