Welcome from the acting President Sebastián López López to all in attendance.
1.Presentation and approval of the 2009 Accounts.
The Treasurer, Maribel Gordillo, presented the Accounts and final balances of the Adecom Bank Accounts. The need was stressed for the collaboration of all Associates to pay the annual quota in order for the Association to continue. Although we are pending various subsidies that have been applied for, at present, without the collaboration of the Associates there is a lack of funds for basic expenses such as the office telephone, office material etc. Some of the Associates present made known their discontent of the fact that others had not paid their quota from last year, expecting Adecom to continue to function without their support. It was therefore requested that those ones not be treated in the same way as those who from the beginning had been paying their quota.
