General Assembly

As the most authoritative decision-making body of EPDAD, the General Assembly consists of the members registered to EPDAD. General Assemblies are divided into two structures based on their powers and manner of assembly: Ordinary General Assemblies and Extraordinary General Assemblies.

The Ordinary General Assembly convenes once every three years in May at the location and time determined by the Board of Directors.

Legal entities, which are members of the association, are required to notify the Board of Directors of the Association about their representatives to be participated in the General Assembly meeting and must submit the necessary authorization documents by the beginning of April in the year of the meeting.

The Board of Directors of the General Assembly must convene the General Assembly for an extraordinary meeting within thirty days when deemed necessary by the Board of Directors or the Board of Supervisors or upon the written request of one-fifth of the EPDAD members. Only the subject of the meeting is to be discussed and finalized in the Extraordinary General Assembly meeting. No proposals can be made to add any other topics to the agenda.

The functions and powers of the General Assembly are as follows:

  1. To make the necessary decisions in accordance with the relevant laws and the statute,
  2. To discuss and approve the work schedule, budget, and revenue and expenditure charts for the next working period,
  3. To determine the entrance fees and annual membership fees to be collected from members,
