Generalforsamling 2022

Minutes General Assembly in the Danish Demographic Society.
October 7th, 2022

The General Assembly was held online on October 7th, 2022, starting at 2pm. The agenda followed the statutes of the association:

1. Election of a conductor

The board suggested that Lene Tølbøll (LT), chairman, took the task as conductor. The General Assembly consented.

LT noted that the invitation to the general assembly is according to the statutes to be sent to members of the society at least 14 days prior to the general assembly. The invitation was sent to all previous and new members on September 22nd and thus in due time.

2. The chairman’s report

The last General Assembly was held in June 2017. There were at this point, no candidates for the election of board members. Consequently, we announced a meeting in October 2017, consisting of a presentation and an Extraordinary General Assembly with ‘Election of the board of directors’ as the only item on the agenda. The meeting was however cancelled as no one registered for the event. After the last general assembly, the board thus only consisted of Lene Tølbøll as chairman. Vibeke Jakobsen who served as treasurer up until this point agreed to keep this task until it was possible to find another solution.

There have been no other activities hereafter.

No membership fees have been charged during the period.

It has thus been a very long time since there have been activities in the Danish Demographic Society. It is our impression that it will require commitment from both a new board and from members if we are to revive our association.

There were no comments to the report

3. Treasurer’s report

Vibeke Jakobsen, treasurer, gave a statement on the books.
