II.  ATTENDANCE

In 2003 the IHGC had 20 members. The representatives from the 15 of them as well as some guests attended the meeting (see the list of presence attached).

 

Point 1

The IHGC President Mr. Bernard Ingwiller opened the meeting in the "Hilton Sofia hotel" with warm greetings to all who attended it. He proposed the submitted agenda of the meeting, which was after that adopted unanimously.  Since 15 from 20 of the IHGC representatives were present  (thus more than one third  - according to the modified Standing Orders of Canterbury 2001), the quorum was constituted. From among members present, the following IHGC representatives were nominated:

 

Australia: Stewart C. Ferguson, Belgium: Lieve Tallieu, Bulgaria: Vladimir Ivanov, China (Gansu): Luo Xin Chao, China (Xinjiang):absent, Czech rep.:Bohumil Pazler,  France: Bernard Ingwiller, FRG-BRD:Otmar Weingarten,New Zealand:absent, Poland: Krzysztof Kargul, Portugal:absent, Russia:absent, Slovakia: Marían Borovský, Slovenia:Martina Zupancic, Spain: Jose A. Magadan, South Africa:absent, U. K.: Martin Jolly, Ukraine: Volodymyr Romanchuk, USA: Douglas MacKinnon, Serbia and Montenegro:Olga Curovic,


Point 2

The minutes of the Executive Committee meeting in Paris from April 5, 2003 had been sent to all the representatives of the IHGC member countries. Since no comments or supplementary claims were submitted, they were adopted unanimously.

 

Point 3

The Secretary General presented the list of the Hop Order nominees for 2003. After having received 27 proposals from national organisations to the IHGC secretariat the list included the following persons. The list was adopted unanimously.

E. Ian O’May - II, Stewart C. Ferguson - II (Australia), Zhou CHANG SHENG, Luo XIN CHAO (PR CHINA), Jiri Amler, Josef CernY, Jiri KopeckY (Czech Rep), Michel HAAG, Gilbert BAUER (France), Josef Miller, Karl Locher, Bartholomäus Schauer, Peter Wieser, Rainer Kluge (Germany), Robert B. Denholm (NZ), Krzysztof  Kargul (Poland), Pavel Mjartan (Slovakia), Ivan JoSt (Slovenia), Jan KiSgeci – II (Serbia and Montenegro), Charles Pudge (UK), Volodymyr Romanchuk (Ukraine), Leslie Roy – II, Ralph Olson, Don Weathers, John Sitzman (USA), Josef Schrag – III, Robert Kellner (IHGC). 

 

Point 4

The president of the IHGC and its Secretary General informed the delegates about the financial situation of the organisation. Since the budget depends on hop acreage and thus on delegate number of member countries (from 65 in 2001 to 58 in 2003), a future budget income would be lower as in the past. At the same time there are some member countries having debts by non-paying their fees such as Portugal, China (Xinjiang), Russia and South Africa RSA – totally in amount of 3.900 USD. Delegates accepted a proposal for these member countries that they ought to cover their debts till the next IHGC meeting.

 

Point 5

The president made some proposals for the IHGC future meetings according to plans from previous meetings. The next IHGC meeting will be on November 11, 2003 in Nuremberg –Germany just before opening the BRAU fair. Further it was agreed for a French delegation to propose a place for the spring meeting in April 2003.

A Polish delegation presented their proposal for the summer meeting in August 2004 in Lublin. They were also opened for any suggestions concerning the field trip around the Polish hop fields. A more detailed plan of this excursion will be presented during the next meeting in Germany.

There were no more comments about other - already planed  - future meetings of the IHGC.

 

Point 6

According to previous discussions and the decision of the Executive committee the prepared amendments of the IHGC Standing orders will be proposed for an adoption during the Extraordinary General Assembly on the Congress.

 

Point 7

Mr. F. Chvalovsky and Mr. J. Schrag were nominated as honorary Vice-presidents of the IHGC.

Some member countries like Portugal and China-Xinjiang have given no response to IHGC contacts for more than 2 years. In a discussion delegates were asked to participate by contacting the delegations from these two member countries.

Mr. Martin Jolly made a proposal to prepare and send an official IHGC letter with appreciation to Mr. Jean Paul Feldmann for his EC contribution during being in a chair of the IHGC Economic commission. The proposal was adopted unanimously.

No more items have been discussed. The next meetings will take place on November 11 - in Nuremberg.
