EMAlumni Association General Assembly

About the EMA General Assembly:


General Assemblies are a central element in the life of the EMAlumni Association. The main purpose of the General Assembly (GA) is to review the Board’s activity and financial report, to adopt changes to the statute and to have a general discussion on aims and directions of the Association.

The GA is the highest governing body of the association and a democratic moment in the life of the association. It decides on major changes related to the functioning of the association. This year we choose new board members, including a new president, make the mid-term report available and receive feedback for our planned projects.

Q&A about the General Assembly


How can Alumni participate in the General Assembly?

Alumni who paid their yearly 20 euros contribution (free to pay more) to the association can vote and be elected during the General Assembly.

What does it mean to be part of the board? What activities and workload am I expected to deliver?

Being a board member means participating to the management and operational organ of the Association, discussing how to implement our goals and sometimes leading a project (webinars, communication strategies, career day, etc). It is a two years mandate. Usually, board members meet virtually once a month for one hour. Examples of activities that new board members may coordinate are projects/strategy to increase Alumni engagement, social media, career day in Venice and fundraising strategies. The amount of work is decided by free will and consensus, understanding that it is voluntary position.

The General Assemblies are run in accordance with article 13 of the statutes of the EMAlumni Association. The GA consists of all full members (Supportive Members who paid the 20 euros fee). It takes place once a year and only full members can vote and be elected as board members
