The Extraordinary General Assembly meetings are organized when the President deems it necessary or it is demanded in writing to the Secretariat by at least one-fifth of full members. The Executive Committee members may submit a report to the President proposing the need for an extraordinary meeting. The summons shall include a preliminary agenda, and the delegates may within one month add further items to the agenda.
