     48 This proposal is to totally empower the Leadership Committee to host the yearly MF/PL membership meeting. This means that each year the LC will be responsible for setting the date and place for Members' Meeting. In reality, this will mean that the LC face-to-face yearly meeting will deal with the budget and project proposals, while the rest of the year will typically be devoted to mobilization towards the membership meeting and taking responsibility, in-part, for its logistical needs, too.

     50 Date and place for the membership meeting should be decided and announced no later than May 1 of each year.
