Comme nous sommes tenus de donner 2 semaines de préavis pour l'AGA par nos membres qui ont signé récemment et n'ont pas reçu l'invitation par courriel ne peuvent pas voter à l'AGA. En raison des limitations techniques du service gratuit que nous utilisons pour tenir cette réunion, la réunion ne sera pas ouverte aux participants sans droit de vote.
