Nagoya INTERMAG 2005 – memories
Annual General Meeting
Under the terms of the revised Constitution and By-Laws of the IEEE Magnetics Society the Society will now hold an Annual General Meeting each year, usually at our Intermag Conference.
The 2005 Annual General Meeting was held during the Intermag Conference in Nagoya on 7 April from 12.30 pm to 1.00 pm in Room 131/132 of the Nagoya Congress Center.
The Agenda for the meeting was:
The primary purpose of the General Meeting is to improve awareness of how the Society operates and also how the membership can become involved in the work of the Society should they so wish. Hence time for open discussion has been maximized.
As a Magnetics Society member you may also like to know that the Society has recently undertaken a major overhaul of its Constitution and By-Laws. The Constitution requires that members are given an opportunity to object to these changes and if more than 10% of the membership objects the new Constitution does not come into effect. The Constitution can be found at http://www.ieeemagnetics.org/ should you wish to review it. Any objections should be sent to the Executive Director of the Society, Diane Melton, whose e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
