Second Executive Committee Meeting of 2022
On 15 September 2022, the Executive Committee met in Vienna to prepare the upcoming General Assembly. The key decisions are summarised below.
Under the lead of CIT Chair Maria Sack (DB AG), the Executive Committee held its second meeting of 2022 in Vienna 2 the kind invitation of RCA. The meeting started with the very interesting keynote speech of Clemens Först (CEO of RCA). The Committee prepared the upcoming CIT General Assembly on 17 November in Bern. Due to continuing travel restrictions in force amongst members, this year’s General Assembly will be a “hybrid” event: members can either attend in-person in Bern, or by video conference.
The key topics discussed by the Executive Committee during its meeting were succession planning for the CIT Secretary-General following his retirement in mid-2023, and elections to fill vacancies in the Executive Committee. The meeting also discussed the 2023 budget and a “COVID-19 rebate” whereby CIT members will receive financial relief during 2023 in the shape of significantly reduced membership fees. The Executive Committee subsequently discussed the Programme of Work for 2023 to be submitted to the General Assembly for approval. Finally, the Executive Committee decided to revise the staff and financial regulations in some important points.
