Dear Colleagues,

The General Assembly (GA) will be held in an online format on 28 August 2020. Since this year the Annual Conference – our traditional summer get together in person – is not possible, we will meet online to exchange ideas in two sessions prior and after the GA. We will start with a forum with the topic ‘Ways Forward’ . This will be followed by the GA. Finally, there will be a closing lecture by Rolf Hughes and Rachel Armstrong on ‘Navigating an Age of Uncertainty through Architectural Research: Rethinking value in our learning cultures and research environments’. The programme is below. Make sure to register here.

Please also find the agenda for the General Assembly below. We would like to especially draw your attention to the agenda item regarding the elections: As the COVID-19 crisis, which also severely affects all EAAE activities, is not yet overcome, and as business everywhere is far from normal, the Council suggests to extend the terms of all council members for one year. It is important to the Council of being able to ensure the smooth functioning of the daily business in these difficult times and the successful completion of the projects that have been started but are invariably delayed due to the restrictions caused by the pandemic. Regular elections would take place in 2021. The Council is convinced, that a postponement would allow for a proper discussion and a fair election process regarding all candidacies for the various posts in the Council. The voting will be based on this proposal. We are very much counting on your support.

If you should have any questions regarding the General Assembly or your membership status, do not hesitate to contact the EAAE secretariat.

Registration for the General Assembly is mandatory, so that we can send you a Zoom access link.  If you want to give a mandate to vote to a representative of another member school, please fill in the proxy form. It is possible until 26 August 2020. All relevant information and documents for the GA can be found hereunder.

We look forward to meeting all of you online.

Best regards,
Oya Atalay Franck
President, EAAE
