6 Report back on the definition of AMEDA observer / associate members, their rights and obligations. The key question was, if the associate members pay a fee for their membership, do they have a right to vote? Finding: AMEDA Bye-Laws can be amended to grant associate members the right to attend AMEDA general meetings, with no voting rights. (See full report). Task Allocated: AMEDA Governance

7 Summary of Recommendations: Associate members should have the right to propose issues for discussion. Associate members should have the right to participate fully, with voting rights, in AMEDA Working Groups. AMEDA can charge Associate members a lower membership fee.
