Individual Associate Members ESA
Since 25 March 2012, there has been no national Suzuki association in Germany. All Suzuki Teachers and Teacher Trainers resident in Germany were invited to join the ESA as Individual Associate Members in order to maintain Membership of the ESA and continue teaching the Suzuki Method™ in Germany.
The ESA Board agreed at the 2013 AGM to invite applications for a national Suzuki association in Germany as per the procedures outlined on the ESA website.
One application was received and presented at the ESA Board Meeting on 17 April 2014.
An application was submitted by SuzukiMusik Deutschland 2011 e.V. (SMD)
All documents were checked and verified and all ESA requirements were met in the Statues of the SMD, excepting one concerning the voting in the general assembly. The SMD have undertaken to modify their statutes so that the weight of votes of A, B1 and B2 members in general meetings should never be less than half against the other membership categories. This modification is to be proposed at the next AGM of SMD on 5 October 2014, with revised Statutes and English translation to be submitted after that date to the ESA.
Flora Gáll was elected as proposed ESA Country Director for Germany at the SMD AGM in November 2013.
At the 2014 Annual General Meeting of the European Suzuki Association (ESA) it was agreed by a majority vote that the SuzukiMusik Deutschland 2011 e.V. (SMD) will be appointed as a Full Country Member of the ESA on condition that the SMD change their statutes and adopt the ESA requirement that A and B teachers have at least 50% of the votes in the AGM.
This appointment will be made on the date that the revised statutes and English translation are received at the ESA Office.
In summary -
SuzukiMusik Deutschland 2011 e.V. (SMD) will be appointed as a Full Country Member of the European Suzuki Association upon receipt of the revised statutes and English translation at the ESA Office following the SMD AGM in October 2014.
This means that -
SuzukiMusik Deutschland 2011 e.V. will be the national Suzuki association for Germany and Flora Gáll will be ESA Country Director for Germany from the date the conditions of appointment as above are met.
Membership of the ESA for Suzuki Teachers in Germany
Currently, Suzuki teachers in Germany have retained their membership of the ESA by Individual Associate Membership. Membership fees are paid up until 31 December 2014.
After the SMD have been appointed the national Suzuki association for Germany, Suzuki teachers in Germany will be invited to renew their membership of the ESA by becoming a member of the SMD which gives them automatic Individual Affiliate Membership of the ESA.
Individual Associate Membership of the ESA will no longer be available in Germany after the appointment of SMD.
