Invitation to vote online 
Special Resolution 2020 
To change the Articles of Association

 

Dear Legato Member Chorus,

 

The Board is inviting you to vote on a special resolution to change the Articles of Association to comply with the request of the German authorities to make it clear a maximum of seven members can be elected to the board. The law allows us to do this online. This vote is in preparation for the Annual General Meeting.

 

We need at least 62 member choirs to make a vote and of these votes, we need 66% to agree to this change.

 

The exact change of words are detailed below, if you have any question, please
email board@legato-choirs.com

 

Each member choir is allowed one vote to agree to the proposed change. If another member of your choir votes only one vote will be valid. Every choir has the opportunity to vote online so there will be no need for proxy voting.

 

The voting opens today at noon on Friday 12 June 2020 and will be open for 2 weeks until noon on Friday 26 June 2020 to vote 

PLEASE! Check your email for the invitation link

We have the pleasure to remind you about the annual Legato delegates meeting: 
Saturday, 10 October 2020 at 2 pm CET (Central European Time).
The Agenda and documents will be sent out at the end of July.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the General Meeting.

APPENDIX


Special Resolution for online vote

CHANGING OF THE ARTICLES OF ASSOCIATION

 

Explanation: The German registry court denied the last board election in Brussels in 2019 because of a mistake in the voting process as the words in our Articles of Association were not clear... For future elections, we propose the following new sentence in red and underlined.

Articles of Association*

§7 Board

 

2. The board is elected by the general assembly for a period of two years.
 

It is chosen for whom more than half of the voters present vote "yes". 
 

If more candidates receive the required votes than there are vacancies, the candidates with the highest number of votes are elected.

 

If several candidates for a board position do not receive the necessary number of yes votes, further ballots will be necessary. The candidate with the lowest number of yes votes from the previous ballot will not be taken into account in the further ballots for the respective board position. 

 

They remain in office until a new board is elected. 

 

The individual re-election of board members is permitted.

Satzung

§7 Vorstand

 

2. Der Vorstand wird von der Mitgliederversammlung für die Dauer von zwei Jahren gewählt. 

 

Gewählt ist, für wen mehr als die Hälfte der anwesenden Stimmberechtigten mit „Ja“ stimmen. 

 

Wenn mehr Kandidat*innen die erforderlichen Stimmen erhalten als Positionen zu besetzen sind, sind die Kandidat*innen in der Rangfolge mit den meisten Stimmen gewählt.

 

Erhalten mehrere Kandidat*innen für eine Vorstandsposition nicht die notwendige Anzahl an Ja-Stimmen, werden weitere Wahlgänge notwendig. Der*die Kandidat*in mit der geringsten Ja-Stimmenzahl aus dem vorherigen Wahlgang bleibt bei den weiteren Wahlgängen für die jeweilige Vorstandsposition unberücksichtigt. 

 

Er bleibt solange im Amt, bis ein neuer Vorstand gewählt ist. 

 

Die einzelne Wiederwahl von Vorstandsmitgliedern ist zulässig.
