:: New IMPC Constitution  

Since the XXI IMPC in Rome there have been a number of discussions convened by the Chairman of the International Steering Committee (to be renamed IMPC Council), Professor Eric Forrsberg, with a view to writing a new version of the Constitution of the IMPC. In this task he has been greatly assisted by Dr Robin Batterham, the Vice-Chairman of the Committee. At the meeting of the International Steering Committee (IMPC Council) which took place in Cape Town in August 2002 the Draft Constitution was discussed in great detail and it was agreed that this Draft should again be it be submitted for endorsement at its next meeting due to take place on Sunday 29 September 2003 in Cape Town, just prior to the XXII IMPC.

To that end the procedure will be as follows:

You are invited to submit comments on this draft version of the new Constitution to Professor Eric Forrsberg via his secretary Mrs Siv Berhan (siv.berhan@km.luth.se) by no later than 30 June 2003.

These comments will be incorporated as appropriate into the final draft that will be put to the International Scientific Committee (to be renamed International Advisory Committee) electronically for ratification by no later than 31 August 2003.

The Int'l Steering Committee (IMPC Council) will vote on the final draft at its scheduled meeting in Cape Town on Sunday 28 September 2003.

The approved Constitution will be tabled for information at a business meeting of the delegates to the XXII IMPC on the afternoon of Wednesday 1 October 2003. The country selected to host the XXIV IMPC will also be invited to announce their event at this meeting. The Organisers of the XXIII IMPC, viz. Turkey, will be invited to showcase their Congress plans at the closing ceremony on Friday 3 October 2003.
