Online Meeting of the IPA Poland National Board

06 Apr 2021

Due to the constant health threat associated with the coronavirus pandemic and legal restrictions in this regard in Poland, the IPA Poland National Board Presidium decided to cancel the National Board physical meeting, which had been planned to take place in the second half of March 2021. Instead, the Presidium decided to organise the National Board meeting online, to take place on Saturday 20th of March.

The internet connection not only enabled the members of the National Board to see one another (after a year’s break), but they could also hear the IPA Poland President’s report and some brief information concerning the functioning of the IPA Presidium presented by the members of the Presidium, the chairman of the audit committee and the chief editor of “IPA Poland News”. Furthermore, all the various figures associated with the functioning of IPA Poland in the year 2020 were presented. In addition, the presidents of the regional IPA groups had an opportunity to speak and pose questions.

Bearing in mind the proper functioning of our association and the need to make the most important decisions (resolutions), the President of IPA Poland had sent a package of documents to the Presidents of the IPA Voivodship Groups, which included information on the activities of the IPA Poland Presidium, as well as proposals to adopt resolutions and drafts of these resolutions. The Presidents were given a reasonable amount of time to analyse those documents and to vote on individual resolutions.

As a result of the online voting, the National Board of IPA Poland adopted a number of resolutions, including the approval of the IPA Poland budget for 2021, new IPA recommended facilities, the awarding of the medal "Meritorious for IPA Poland", granting the title of honorary "Meritorious for IPA Poland", and granting financial assistance to IPA members.

The location for the autumn National Board meeting has also been determined, and it only remains to hope that it will be held as planned - physical.

We look forward to seeing you in October 2021.
