The General Assembly of COAR was held at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) in Madrid. Of the 48 COAR members, 33 members and one partner organisation was present and further 8 organisations have transferred their vote to a proxy. Based on presentations and proposals discussed by its members, the General Assembly took decisions on
- five core objectives, for which working groups will soon be established
- the extension of COAR’s membership scheme by group memberships
- the membership fees for 2010
- a preliminary budget for the activities envisioned for 2010.
Further information on the new COAR membership scheme will be made available very soon.
