General Assembly of the Union Corps San Lazare International: January 2013
On January 26th, 2013 there was "great battle day of General Assemblies" for the Lazarus Union as there were three General Assemblies scheduled for that day. But anyone expecting anything big surely got disappointed as all three general assemblies were not only finished within three hours but all decisions on motions were passed unanimously.
The guest of honour during the day was the Grand Prior of the Austrian Grand Priory of the Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, the Chev. Oliver Gruber-Lavin KLJ (acting as observer of the Grand Chancellery in Malta).
The chair of the Naval Comradeship Vizeadmiral Erzherzog Ferdinand Max - CSLI in the Lazarus Union and in the Austrian Naval Union (Wolfgang Steinhardt) took time to report on the various activities of the organisation including the report on the 1st Handicapped Sail Cruise of the Lazarus Union. Hannes Hochmuth was also co-opted as Vice Chair of the Naval Comradeship.
The culminating summit of the day was the general assembly of the Lazarus Union to which more than 70% of all members entitled to vote did show up. Thanks to the new home page the Lazarus Union president, Senator h.c. Wolfgang Steinhardt, could reduce his report to the headers (there was definitely much to report on last year‘s numerous activities).
Also to be mentioned is the noticeable camaraderie and the communal spirit. No single aggressive word, no dispute, no personal attacks, no irrelevant criticism, but only constructive and forward-looking contributions where everybody was trying his best to contribute to the whole and the collective success. All planned events and activities can be found on the homepage of the Union Corps San Lazare International.
Altogether this day was another successful milestone in the short history of the Lazarus Union and its associated unions and an excellent proof of the good work provided in the spirit of St. Lazarus by all the directors, officials and members.
