Note that there will be 7 vacancies for the BBBA Board of Directors, in case the proposal to increase the number of Board members from 7 to 9 is accepted at the AGM. Nominated candidates will have the opportunity to present themselves in front of BBBA members at the Annual General Meeting.

Following subsequent discussion, the BBBA Board of Directors decided to supplement the proposed amendment to the BBBA Statutes regarding the increase of Board member mandates from two to three. The change states the amendment will not apply to current members of the Board. As a result, the nominations of Gilbert McCaul and Genoveva Christova for board members have been withdrawn.
