The European Transpersonal Association
Dear Member of the Delegate Council,
Greetings!
Please read this carefully and let us have any comments by 24 April. If we do not hear from
you by then, we will assume that you are in agreement with the proposed amendments. The
purpose of circulating the Bylaws and Constitution is to give time for them to be reviewed
before our meeting in Bad Kissingen.
EUROTAS CONSTITUTION
The Dobogoko council meeting asked the Board to review the Constitution and the
Bylaws to ensure that they were consistent with the new approach and the Bylaws
amendments to Article III, paragraph 3 which was omitted and Article IV paragraphs 1 and
2. (see letter on Bylaws)
There are 3 proposed changes to the Constitution to ensure this consistency and to confirm
the unanimous wishes of the Board and Council at the meeting in Dobogoko that other
associations and individuals should be able to join EUROTAS. Also to confirm our wish that
we should strive to interpret the expressed desire of the Constitution which states: “implicit in
all this is the search for ways to transcend national boundaries.” We want to encourage all
European associations to work together, not necessarily European countries. These three
proposed changes to the Constitution require a two-thirds majority of the Delegate Council
1. Article II. Replace “national” with “European transpersonal associations.”
Reason for Change. To confirm the decisions taken in Dobogoko, that more than one
association from any country can join EUROTAS
2. Article III.
This reads:
” EUROTAS is composed of formally established transpersonal associations or federations
with legal identity, one for each European country, called Members. Any European country
not yet represented in EUROTAS can apply to join as a Member. Other European
organisations interested in the transpersonal movement can be invited by their national
associations to become Friends of EUROTAS in the Network, with no voting rights.”
It is proposed to:
Delete “one for each European country”.
Replace “country” in the second sentence with “association or federation”.
Delete ” by their national associations in the third sentence.”
The revised paragraph reads: ” EUROTAS is composed of formally established transpersonal
associations or federations with legal identity in Europe, called Members. Any European
transpersonal association not yet represented in EUROTAS can apply to join as a Member.
Other European organisations interested in the transpersonal movement can be invited to
become Friends of EUROTAS in the Network with no voting rights.”
Reason for Changes: To confirm the decision taken in Dobogoko, that more than one
association from any country can join EUROTAS
3. Article IV. paragraph 1. Delete “national”.
Reason for Change: To confirm the decisions taken in Dobogoko, that more than one
association from any country can join EUROTAS
Best Wishes
EUROTAS Board of Administrators.
