As you may be aware, the Economics Association of Zambia (EAZ) was due to hold a presidential debate on Tuesday,30th December,2014 which was unfortunatelty aborted on the same day.
Kindly click on the link below to read a press statement from EAZ on the aborted presidential debate for your information.
The EAZ will be holding a debate for the candidates of the 2015 Presidential bye-election tonight, live on ZNBC TV from 19:00 to 21:00.
Please note that entrance to the debate is strictly by invitation only. Therefore if you have not received an invitation, watch the debate on ZNBC TV for the live programme.
We Wish you a prosperous 2015.
This serves to inform all EAZ members that the AGM scheduled for 20 December 2014 did not take place due to the failure to form a quorum. This is the second time in a row that the AGM has not been held for this reason. The AGM was dissolved into a general meeting where it was resolved that:
1. The AGM would be held at a date to be advised, this date being no later than 90 days from the original intended date of the AGM.
2. The current Board would continue until such a time as new office bearers are elected.
3. The Constitution would be amended to remove the requirement that 20% of the members be present to hold the AGM and that the AGM could go ahead with a simple majority. It was also resolved that this would be an opportune time to make any amendments to the Constitution and Articles that are deemed necessary.
In this regard, all members are invited to submit suggestions to the Secretariat by close of business, Wednesday, 14 January 2014. The suggestions will then be compiled and a draft revised Constitution and Articles prepared which will be tabled at the AGM for approval.
We would like to urge all members to participate in this exercise and contribute to the strengthening of a vibrant, influential association.
This is to inform you that the EAZ Secretariat will be closed for a Christmas break effective today, Monday, 22nd December, 2014 to Tuesday, 6th January, 2015.
