Alphabetical order for speaking will be used (see Member Society subscription sheets).
Congress participants may sit in on the I.V.U. A.G.M. on the morning of Wednesday 29th August but only I.V.U. Officers and those who have been made official delegates by Member Society letter may vote (according to the quotas laid down in Clause 20 of the I.V.U. Constitution. It would be appreciated if the first 4 rows of seats are kept free for I.V.U. Officers and official delegates at these meetings in order to facilitate vote counting.
