“Considering the challenges between 2019 and 2020 of new HIC faces in the Presidency and in the HIC GS;
And, therefore, the great need to consolidate the Board’s capacity;
Considering also the attributions given by the HIC Constitution (2013) and later by the HIC By-Law (attributions, by now, not yet used);

The motion proposes to appoint immediately an additional Board Member in representation of the feminist movements; an internal decision by the Board Members; but with the request for support from this General Assembly 2018;
Appointing Ana Falú for this other Board Member; Ana Falú from Argentina was founder and still is an active partner of the Women and Habitat Network LA; she knows the Coalition for many years – not to say decades –; she already was HIC Board Member during the late 90s and in the beginning of the 2000s; she also has been an important HIC Vice President who contributed to build alternatives during the institutional crisis of 2001-2003.”
