Tuesday, 28 May 2019, Ordinary General Assembly of the CERN Staff Association

Ideas, open debates and votes

The CERN Staff Association held its General Assembly on Tuesday 28 May 2019. As every year, this is the ideal time to meet the team at the helm of the Staff Association, to learn about the activities and successes of the past year, but also about the work programme for the coming year. It is also at the General Assembly that important decisions are taken democratically by a vote of all members present.

We are pleased to have been able to count on a significant increase in the number of participants this year.
