2e Algemene Ledenvergadering KLV in het teken van opheffing KLV | 22 september 2020

Dear KLV-member,

In the most recent General Assembly (GA) of KLV, held last Tuesday 30 June 2020, the 4th agenda item concerned the "Proposal to dissolve KLV". At this GA the decision whether or not to dissolve could not yet be made. In order to actually make the decision to dissolve, at least half (being 2958) of the number of voting members (being 5916) had to vote, of which three quarters had to vote in favour of dissolution. At the start of the GA, the required quorum had not been reached: at that time, 44 members had exercised their voting rights, part of whom participated in the meeting.

In accordance with the articles of association, the proposal to dissolve will be put to the vote again at a new GA. This GA must take place within three months but not within fourteen days after June 30, 2020. In this GA, a decision to dissolve can be taken by a majority of three-quarters of the votes, without a quorum requirement.

This next GA will take place on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, starting at 20.00hrs. Agenda: Proposal to dissolve KLV.

Online or physical
It is not yet clear whether the temporary Corona Act, which makes digitally cast votes valid, will be extended after August 31. Whether or not a physical meeting can be organized is decisive for the voting procedure with regard to the proposal to dissolve KLV. We will inform you as soon as we know how the GA will take place and how the voting procedure looks like. You can already note the date and time of this GA.

On behalf of the board of KLV, Han Swinkels, chairman
