* Constitution: AGM 2008 on 1st November 2008 approved two key documents for the administration of the Association:

- a constitution (click here) comprising "strategic" provisions (such as objectives, organisation) which change very rarely and which are formally lodged with the French authorities see below);

- a set of internal procedures (such as job descriptions, quorum, voting) which are susceptible  to more frequent change and which can be modified by the Committee and/or by AGM, without needing to involve the préfêt.   This document was reviewed in the context of discussions at AGM 2011 and has since been modified. See post of 20120106 for details and access.

- Both of the above documents have now been translated into French and the translations verified (thanks to Hélène and to Anne-Marie).  The STATUTS have been duly registered at the Sous-Préfecture in Nérac and are now the document of reference:  click here for a sight of the Statuts.

For reference and for the record, linkages are provided to the 1992 French document, and to its English translation
