ESO Annual General Assembly: March 28, 2006

The Environment Society of Oman's first Annual General Assembly (AGA) will be held on Tuesday March 28th at the Mumtaz Mahal restaurant's event hall. There will be a dinner and presentation by the Oman Whale and Dolphin Group (now part of ESO) detailing the findings of their Annual Survey in Masirah.

It is extremely important that as many of our members as possible attend this meeting as it is when our board members are elected so we need at least 50% of the members to show up. In order to attend the AGA you must be a paid up member so if your membership has expired please pay your fees before that date or else bring the renwal fee with you.

An Extraordinary General Meeting (EGA) will be held prior to the EGA to change the following in our constitution:

1. Reduce Board members from 12 to 8 allowing for a quorum of 5 rather than 7.
2. Reduce individual membership fees from RO 15 to RO 10 starting Jan 1, 2007.
3. Reduce the required suppor backing members for board nomination from 25 to 10.

If you are an ESO member please make the effort to attend the meeting or else send a proxy on your behalf. If you require a proxy form contact our office on 24482121 or email:

Why is the board being reducted from 12?
