Del Mesa Carmel
500 Del Mesa Drive, Carmel, CA 93923
A special meeting of the membership of our local chapter of the Alliance Francaise will be held for the purpose of voting on the adoption of new bylaws for our association. Our Bylaws have been re-drafted in order to comply with guidelines of the Fondation Alliance francaise. The Fondation is the governing body of the worldwide Alliance Francaise organization. All chapters of the Alliance Francaise are obligated to comply with the guidelines of the Fondation in order to use the name “Alliance Francaise” for their organizations, and to be eligible for the benefits of the Alliance Francaise. Such eligibility includes qualification to compete for and receive grant funding and financial assistance for various activities – which could include our scholarship programs.
The proposed new bylaws have been drafted so as to conform as closely as practical to our existing bylaws, while adhering to the guidelines of the Fondation. These proposed bylaws are being sent to each of our members on record together with this meeting announcement, so you may read them in their entirety.
By this invitation, we invite each member either to attend the Extra-Ordinary General Assembly meeting on June 8, 2014, or to cast your vote by proxy using the Proxy Voting Form below.
