As you are aware that the Annual General Meeting for the financial year ended on 31st March, 2020 is to be held by 30th September, 2020 as per Clause 17 of the statutes of AFD.
However, due to the concurrence of the unforeseen circumstances, the governing body of the Alliance Française de Delhi has decided to postpone the Annual General Meeting of the institution for a period of three months, i.e until 31st December 2020.
The main reason to seek this extension is due to the fact that our books of accounts have not been audited by the statutory auditors so far and is underway at the moment. Due to the pandemic and subsequent lockdown, like for other institutions, our own office functioning also got affected and hence caused delays. The delay has occurred due to circumstances beyond our control.
In view of the above circumstances, it is proposed that the AGM may be postponed by 3 months i.e. upto 31st December, 2020. An application to that end has been made to the registrar of societies. This extension will give us enough time to complete the requisite Statutory Audit.
Please be assured that we are determined to hold the AGM asap by getting the aforesaid formalities completed.
We shall keep you informed on the subject asap.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
