P O S T P O N E D!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
As Board of the School Association of the German International School Doha, we would like to give the following preliminary information in preparation for the general assembly of the association.
The meeting will be held on Monday, October 31, 2016 in the auditorium of the school. Starting time is planned for 19:00h. The official invitation will be sent to the members latest 10 days before the session as per the Statutes.
Following statutes and according to the guidelines of the Foreign Office a club member can be anyone who has completed 18 years of age and has usually mastered the German language sufficiently. With the last changes of statutes also parents of students of the GISD are allowed to become member of the school association, German language is not mandatory in this case. The inclusion of legal persons is also possible (e.g. companies that want to sponsor the school and therefore want to send a representative to the meeting). As proper members, who may participate in the meeting count all persons who have registered/re-registered until October 31st, 2016 (>Application form) and the dues have paid (150.00 QAR can from now on be paid at the reception desk). Only these persons may attend the meeting and are then entitled to vote. It will be possible to be represented at the meeting by another member of the assembly.
At this meeting a new school board will be elected as well. It has proven to be useful, that prospective candidates notify the board of their interest in advance to send a short profile (German / English), preferably with photo to the Board, attn. of the Chairman (email@example.com), which is then distributed to the members prior to the assembly. If interested, this letter should be sent by October 24th, so the voters have the opportunity to know the candidates before the meeting. The tasks of the Board can be checked in the Statutes or Rules of Procedure on the homepage. The members of the current Board for the Chairman, Human Resources and Real Estate have expressed their willingness to continue to fulfill their tasks. The area of secretary and finance need to be newly appointed. In addition to board positions, there is also the opportunity to support as an advisor to the school authorities. The advisors are not directly linked to a functional title and can be elected based on their qualification. Following possible advisors are proposed by the
existing Board: Legal; Marketing/Public Relations; booster club. An auditor is also elected at the meeting.
We ask all requests, which are to be introduced in the meeting of the association, to be sent until October 24th to the Board, for the attention of the Chairman, Mr. Jan Schönig (firstname.lastname@example.org), so these can be distributed to all members. Applications can only be made by school association members (see membership above).
We look forward to a lively and active participation.
On behalf of the Board
