Dear Network,

This guide will give you an insight in all the things happening at the biannual General Assembly of AEGEE-Europe, called the Agora.
The guide is divided in three parts; first explaining what should be prepared by the locals beforehand and then giving an overview of all the things happening during the actual event. In the end you can find a summary of CIA regulations concerning the votings and elections taking place in Leiden.
In case you are a relatively new AEGEE member, please attend the “AEGEE for newbies”-session on the arrival day (thursday 14:30 – 15:00pm). If this is your first Agora, please also join the “Agora Speed Course” (thursday 15:00 – 16:00pm).

OPEN CALL for proposals to change the CIA (Agora Istanbul)Public access   Created: 05.09.2010 13:26:56; modified: 05.09.2010 16:25:23
Dear Network,

This is an e-mail by the Juridical Commission for submitting on time
proposals about changes of CIA in the upcoming AGORA. You can start sending
your proposals from today until the 13th of September 2010, (23.59 BXL

So if you desire to change a part of the "CORPUS JURIDICUM AEGEEnse",
you have three weeks to give your contribution with your proposals.

Below you can find the general guidelines you should follow in order to
make your proposals as clear as possible.

Finally, you always can submit to the STATUTORY-REFORMS-L (List for
discussing possible reforms of the Statute of AEGEE).



a. There must be ONE proposals PER TOPIC. This means that
'packet-proposals' or proposals that contain a series of changes about
different things cannot be accepted.
b. Trace all the relevant parts of the CIA that are related to the
change you want to bring about with your proposal. Read very carefully
these parts of the CIA. Please make sure that the change you want to
propose is not something already mentioned in the CIA. (In case you have
doubts, ask the Juridical Commission to inform you).
c. You must be READY to PRESENT the PROPOSAL in front of the AGORA.
It is essential that you will be phisically present to the Agora.
d. Presenting the proposal at the Agora means that you must have
SPEAKING RIGHTS and therefore, it is important that your status at the
Agora is that of a Delegate or an Envoy but not of a Visitor.


a. After having identified the part of the CIA, you would like to
change, copy and paste these parts on a separate Word Sheet. Put your name
(and email address where to contact you) and the name of the proposal
you are about to draw, as title for this document.
b. Trace carefully the articles/sections, sentences/phrases that you
would like to change.
c. When you want to delete a phrase use the "strikethrough" efffect
from the FONTS function of your computer.
d. If you want to add OR replace a deleted phrase/word with a new
one, just write down the new word/phrase and underline it OR set it in
bold characters OR use a different colour to indicate the suggested
e. Go on like this, with the rest of the parts that you want to


a. So, you have finished the proposal, read it carefully and see if
this is what you really wanted?
b. Accompany your proposal with an INTRODUCTION - a short paragraph
that will address briefly the reasons motivating your changes i.e.
explain the reasons why you belive that the current CIA parts should change,
and also the ways in which the Association will benefit from this
change, in case it is accepted by the Agora.


When your proposal is ready, please send it to the Juridical Commission (
AND to the Secretary General of AEGEE Europe (

So again, the strict deadline is 13th of September 2010, 23.59 BXL time! Any
proposal sent after the deadline will NOT be taken into consideration.

Looking forward to receiving good quality proposals.

Europeanly yours,

Martin & Agata

Areas of AEGEE? The Strategic Plan of AEGEE-Europe with an overview of the

same way during past statutory events, so please be creative and try
something new!
