The goal is to allow as many members as possible to participate and for the meeting to be held in accordance with the statutes.
Local union committees are responsible for ensuring that the annual meeting takes place in accordance with our core values and statutes.
Local union committees must prepare all relevant documents for presentation to their members and conduct annual meetings. It is an opportunity and a requirement that committees report on the work they have carried out on during the year.
Auditors' tasks and results must also be reported at annual meetings. Their independent reviews form the basis of the committee's freedom from liability.
A nomination committee will propose the next year’s local union committee at annual meetings. Nomination committees must be impartial and work without interference from the local committee or others. They are expected to suggest committees with all-round competence.
Plan the meeting in accordance with the statutes. Annual meetings should be both democratic (everyone can participate and have a say) and social (activities connected with the meeting). Local union committees are required to carry out all work connected with annual meetings, such as preparing and presenting documents, setting the order of business and recording the decisions taken.
In accordance with "Kongress 2022", local committees should adhere to ”Förslag till klubbstadgar” (Proposals for local union statutes), when proposing new statutes.
Annual meetings can be conducted in real time - in the same room or online. From 2023, we can provide the VoteIT system, as support for annual meetings. We should be contacted at least four weeks before an annual meeting, if this is required. If other systems are used, we cannot offer support.
