Dear members of the ICB,


We are pleased to inform you that the meeting of the ICB Executive

Committee was held on February 10, 2021, with the presence of all seven

members, as follows:

Mr. Nguyen Dang Trung

Mr. Ken Gallant

Ms. Antonia Rocha Gonzalez

Mr. Pierre Kopp

Mr. Abouba Ali Maiga

Mr. Jaume Antich Soler

Mr. Dragoș Chilea

We discussed the organization of a General Assembly in March 2021 in

order to elect the new management of the ICB. Each of the members present

were able to express their point of view and arguments on this subject and we

reached the following conclusions:


- The current health conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic impose

restrictions on us nationally and internationally regarding travel, whether

continental or intercontinental.

- Most states of the European Union and other continents impose special

conditions upon entry and during stay in their territory, such as a negative

COVID-19 test result or full vaccination as well as a period compulsory

isolation on return to the country of origin

- The obligation to ensure above all, the safety and health of all members

of the ICB participating in the General Assembly.

- The lack of rules providing for another method of voting other than that

by the physical presence of voters.

- The need to ensure the transparency and fairness of the vote.

- The existence of a precedent in the history of the organization of

elections for the leadership of the ICB by extending the current term by one


- The fact that these same reasons have led other institutions and

international organizations or companies to postpone the organization of similar

events requiring the physical presence of their members.

In the face of all these arguments, we unanimously took the decision to

organize the General Assembly for the election of the leadership of the ICB in

March 2022.

Until that date, the members of the current Executive Committee will

continue to exercise their current functions.

The unanimous decision of the Executive Committee will be

communicated to the members of the ICB by means of the website as well as


the communication tools available and usually used by the secretariat and the

Secretary General.
