Outcome of vote on WCPT 2019 membership applications

Dear Colleagues

 

The WCPT Constitution states that electronic voting may be used outside a General Meeting to vote on resolutions that relate to the approval of an organisation’s application for membership of WCPT.  Following the WCPT Membership Committee’s assessment of applications received in accordance with the WCPT Constitution, the Executive Board recommended that the member organisations (MOs) pass resolutions to approve applications for membership from the following organisations:

 

·                     French National Council of Physiotherapists

·                     Polish Chamber of Physiotherapists

·                     Order of Physiotherapists in Romania

 

An electronic vote on the proposed resolutions to admit each of these organisations to WCPT membership has been duly held.

 

The WCPT Constitution requires that the Chief Executive Officer send written notice of the outcome of the proposed resolutions to all Member Organisations including details of each organisation’s vote on each resolution within 30 calendar days of the close of voting.

 

At the close of voting at 10:00am GMT on 30 November 2019, 104 of the 120 member organisations (MO) had voted as follows:

 

Resolution on approval of application for membership: French National Council of Physiotherapists

Yes - I approve the application from the French National Council of Physiotherapists for admission to membership of WCPT: 80 votes (83.3%)

No - I do not approve the application from the French National Council of Physiotherapists for admission to membership of WCPT: 16 votes (16.7%)

Votes tallied: 96

Abstentions: 8

 

Resolution on approval of application for membership: Polish Chamber of Physiotherapists

Yes - I approve the application from the Polish Chamber of Physiotherapists for admission to membership of WCPT: 83 votes (83.8%)

No - I do not approve the application from the Polish Chamber of Physiotherapists for admission to membership of WCPT: 16 votes (16.2%)

Votes tallied: 99

Abstentions: 5

 

Resolution on approval of application for membership: Order of Physiotherapists in Romania

Yes - I approve the application from the Order of Physiotherapists in Romania for admission to membership of WCPT: 90 votes (93.8%)

No - I do not approve the application from the Order of Physiotherapists in Romania for admission to membership of WCPT: 6 votes (6.3%)

Votes tallied: 96

Abstentions: 8

 

Therefore, each organisation’s application for admission to membership of the WCPT has been approved and will commence on 01 January 2020. A report outlining the details of each member organisation’s vote on each proposed resolution is attached.

 

A record of these decisions will be included in the Agenda for the next General Meeting.

 

Kind regards

 

Jonathon
