On Tuesday 12 December 2017 the BLCCJ held its annual General Assembly at the BNP Paribas office in Marunouchi. Activities and accounting for 2017 and activity calendar and budget 2018 were unanimously approved by the attending members (incl. proxies).
We announced an election for the Board of Directors 2018-2019, but since we had exactly 12 candidates for 12 seats, there was no need for an election.
