Annual General Meeting – AGM 2015


The 21st International Au Pair Association Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held during WETM-IAC 2015 on Tuesday, 17 March 2015 from 10:20-11:20 at the Sheraton Lisboa Hotel & Spa, Lisbon, Portugal.

36 Full Voting members were present in the room, with 14 organisations holding a proxy vote for members unable to attend.

Besides that, a good number of new members to be ratified were present as well!

During the AGM we presented an overview of our activities over the last year and we provided our outlook for the year 2015.

In addition, the Annual Accounts for 2013 were presented, as well as the preliminary results for 2014 and the budget for 2015.

The assembled membership ratified and approved our 17 new members and agreed on the members to disaffiliate.

Six longstanding members were recognised for their 10 years of membership, out of which three were present at the AGM.
