On Thursday 12 December 2019 the BLCCJ held its annual General Assembly at the BNP Paribas office in Marunouchi. Activities and accounting for 2019 and activity calendar and budget 2020 were unanimously approved by the attending members (incl. proxies).
We announced an election for the Board of Directors 2020-2021, but since we had exactly 12 candidates for 12 seats, an election was not needed.
