If You Cannot Attend 

For the FSC General Assembly 2014 members may designate another member as representative to vote on their behalf.

Please be aware that according to the new FSC’s statutes only FSC members can represent other members at a General Assembly, in the understanding that a member can only represent: a maximum of five organizational members that could be part of any of the three chambers, and an unlimited number of individual members who could be part of any of the three chambers.

Members who want to designate a representative have to provide a written statement attested by two witnesses. This could benefit those members who cannot attend the FSC General Assembly 2014 because of other commitments and/or budget constraints. We appeal to those members who cannot attend the meeting to designate as proxy another member of FSC who will be attending.

To appoint a proxy please use the form available for download on the right and, if deemed appropriate, to give instructions on how to vote on each point on the Agenda. Please send the completed Proxy Form to ga2014@fsc.org.

If the representative designated by an organizational member before FSC AC cannot attend the GA, can some other person do?

Yes. Ideally, the person attending the GA should be the individual that has been designated as the member’s representative to the FSC AC. However, if this person will not be able to attend the GA at Seville in September 2014, another individual can represent the member as long as he/she has been given the necessary authority and faculties to do so in accordance with the legislation of the country where the members is based and with the corporate documents of the member. 

Should you want to send another representative to the GA, please notify FSC AC’s secretariat as soon as possible, providing the name of the alternative representative that will be attending the GA. This is very important as the secretariat needs to make the necessary administrative arrangements in order for the vote of the member to be correctly registered in our voting systems.
